3 College Sophomore

Administration: I wish I got to know the administration outside of the meal plan, and when I did, I felt horrible about myself.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had any problems with the administration here. They seem like they have started really cracking down on the rules around here more.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Don't be stupid about drinking and don't talk about it in the dorms if you're doing it and you won't have trouble.

Administration: Campus administration is generally very good and genuinely care about the well being of students. There has been some tension between students and campus police, who have become much stricter in recent years.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Noise and drinking/drug violations are pretty strict. It mostly depends on how well you and your RA get along.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Campus strictness is tied with safety, and safety is a priority at Linfield College. Drugs are not prevalent at Linfield, and it is not a primary part of life for students. Most students participate in alcohol at parties, but seldom will students even hear about someone using marijuana or hard drugs. Some students feel that the campus is fairly strict on underage drinking, while other students believe campus policy is pretty reasonable and practical.

Campus police generally don't interfere with parties unless the get-togethers get out of hand or alcohol is blatantly noticeable. Also, drug use is not a widespread problem; Linfield has a much lower usage rate than other campuses. The prevailing substances are alcohol at parties or beer when students go off campus to wind down. Usually, campus police will ticket offenses for traffic violations, and overall look out for a student's well-being.
