Administration: If you are smart and responsible, you wont have any problems. The main thing they worry about is your safety and if you act reckless they are not afraid to lay down the law.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school takes some unnecessary things more seriously than necessary, but overall have a good sense of strictness.

4 College Junior

Administration: Campus police, security, and resident assistants are awesome. As long as you're generally following the rules and you're being polite they are all pretty cool.

3 College Junior

Administration: They are pretty average in regards to strictness. They will always bust you for parking, noise violations, and drinking in the dorm.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

On campus, most incidents are dealt with by campus security aides or residence hall staff. Some authorities will be more lenient than others, so it's almost impossible to make any categorical assumptions about the repercussions of breaking campus policies. Keep in mind, however, that campus security and hall staff can always involve the police if a student is breaking a law—and they most likely will. However, on the whole, University Police Services is more concerned with drunk drivers and public disturbances than with smaller issues on campus. In town or on the streets, you're only likely to be stopped if you're causing a disturbance or are very obviously intoxicated. Most students are smarter than that, and can last their entire undergraduate career without having a run-in with security or the police. 

In the residence halls, quiet hours are enforced, although there are seldom serious consequences. Certain halls allow "of age" residents to possess alcohol, but its discovery in other dorms will lead to negative outcomes for all involved. However, only students causing notable disturbances are likely to be discovered. In general, there are relatively few incidents on the Kent State campus. If you do get into trouble, police and security personnel are generally understanding, and they'll most likely respect you if you respect them. However, students who are smart about the things they do and the ways that they go about doing them should have no problems.
