3 College Freshman

Administration: Very strict in terms of rules, especially drinking and intervisitation rules. But for a good reason. I've never had a problem with it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Grove City College enforces a zero tolerance policy with regard to alcohol and drug use on campus. Students over 21 are allowed to leave campus to drink responsibly, as long as they come back sober. While some students have hidden and used alcohol in their rooms, student residential assistants and resident directors are required to report any drug violations and any underage or on-campus alcohol. Off-campus parties are not permitted to serve alcohol, and fraternities have lost their charters for such alcohol violations. Because Grove City College is a private institution and does not receive any government aid, campus security is not required to report any alcohol or drug violations to the town police force. Campus security will enforce rules, but violations are dealt with in house and kept low key. Grovers are all-around smart people and tend to keep any illicit activities undercover. Blowing that cover leads to suspension or expulsion.

However, partiers suggest befriending campus security to increase the odds of a lenient look the other way. The administration and campus security rarely performs room checks, even though College policy gives them the right. However, since campus security faces few real crisis situations, they will often crack down on petty vehicle violations, trespassing, and "improper use" of grassy spots that look inviting for Frisbee. All said, campus security prefers to befriend rather than badger students. A security guard may even join a student-worship group before locking the chapel doors on a Saturday night.

Apparently, back in the 60's Grove City was quite the party school, or so alumni would have us believe. Things have definitely changed.
