3 College Sophomore

Administration: Howard is considered a "dry campus" so they are not tolerant of alcohol/drugs. However, this does not stop people from partaking.

3 College Junior

Administration: Administration is comprised of various individuals. Some are very efficient, and others are not. It's hard to group all of them under one category. Overall, it is okay.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: You'll get in trouble for things that aren't legal (naturally) and visitation is a struggle especially when you're living in all-girls/ all-boys dorms. Once you're in co-ed facilities it's a little bit more lenient.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are always policemen around campus, but their presence is by no means overwhelming. Unless they've been invited to give speeches or administer specific warnings to students, there isn't much interaction between the campus police and the students. When students do commit minor violations like illegal parking, officers are usually somewhat understanding, all depending on the nature of the violation. Since most parties are off campus, in clubs, or someone's house, the school's social scene is somewhat detached from the rest of the campus. Sometimes you have to look for the parties, but they are there, and there's little chance of the city police or campus police coming to break it up, unless of course something goes wrong and someone at the party actually calls them for help.

On the occasions that students have been caught violating the University's code of conduct-which includes a zero-tolerance policy for weapons, drugs, and alcohol on the campus-they are either suspended or expelled, as dictated by the policy. These instances, however, are few and far between, because every Howard student realizes that they operate within a circle of trust. And once you find yourself outside of the circle's circumference, there's no going back.
