4 College Junior

Administration: The administration was great for the most part, minus the housing faculty.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The campus is not very strict. They are mostly strict on underage drinkers.

4 College Student

Administration: They just want to be sure that education comes first.

4 College Freshman

Administration: So far they seem pretty fair I haven't had any problems with them. The only people I know who have had trouble deserved it.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Cops tend to go up to you and bother you sometimes. I've been walking around and been asked what was in my 7-11 Slurpee cup before while there was nothing in there. The police pull you over for pointless things. Teachers are nice some are stricter than others.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students are divided on school policies. Some students believe that the policies are easy to follow and affect the academic and social life of the school in a positive manner. Other students have a different opinion, believing that the enforcement of policies is becoming worse. Some students might walk into a hallway and smell pot (something RAs are supposed to strictly monitor) or see people smoking joints. In terms of smoking cigarettes, there is supposed to be a strict fine for not using designated smoking areas, even though most people who smoke in nondesignated areas don't get in trouble. Be warned, though: you may get stuck behind a smoker walking down the halls and have to breathe it. 

Drinking is another issue. FGCU sometimes has a "they're gonna drink anyway" attitude. Parties are occasionally busted. Overall, the policies at FGCU are just like any other school. Whether these rules get enforced is up to the school, though.
