Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Everyone agrees that you can minimize your chances of getting caught by not drinking or doing drugs in dorm common areas or outside. It’s also a good idea to keep all parties in the dorms quiet and keep doors shut. RAs have the power to give warnings for drugs or alcohol. Although the school claims to have a no-tolerance policy, students generally get three warnings before being thrown out. (Be aware, however, that since drinking in the dorms is forbidden, anyone caught in a room where people are drinking will receive an alcohol warning. If you are worried that someone may be in danger due to substance abuse, however, do not be afraid to call HERO or your RA. They care more about people’s well-being than about issuing warnings.) "Hop cops" want to help students stay safe. Although they can arrest students who are violent or rowdy, they don’t usually do so. As one student pointed out, campus has an ethics committee that enforces infractions for plagiarism, and it is very strict. For substance infractions, if you don’t flaunt that you are breaking the rules, you are unlikely to get in trouble.

Campus strictness is not really an issue. People do get caught, but there are very seldom serious consequences to infractions. When there are consequences, they may range from having your parents called to being expelled from housing or from the University. In most circumstances, the consequences are not great enough to deter students from breaking rules. They just need to remember to use caution. However, campus strictness becomes a severe issue when it comes to cheating, as it is typically enforced with seriousness and severe consequences.
