Administration: I understand that we are a Jesuit campus and hold ourselves to higher standards, but the administration is quick to pass negative judgment among those who enjoy having a drink on the weekend or playing their music over 50 decibels. The student handbook is black and white, so if you're caught breaking a residence hall rule you can expect the maximum sanction-able punishment.

Administration: As long as you respect them and follow the rules (or at least don't get caught) there will be no problems.

Administration: For the most part, the school is lenient and tolerant of new organizations and social causes. Honor code is respectable and allows for flexibility.

Administration: At a Jesuit University there are a lot more rules to adhere to than the average campus, but it's all in your best interest to follow and makes the school a better place to be at.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students agree that the easiest way to keep campus security from catching you in an illicit act is to be smart about it. Loyola's police force is not out to stop students from drinking in the dorms, but if a situation gets out of hand and they have to intervene, they will. By being smart about whatever they are doing, students can avoid getting written up and having to go to things like Alcohol Awareness meetings. Chicago police also won't go out of their way to bust students engaged in liquid revelry. They have much more important things to do in Chicago than hauling a bunch of drunken college students off to jail for the night, such as saving people's lives. The first time they come to your house, they'll likely just tell you to keep the noise down. If things appear to be out of hand, or if they return to the party more than once in a night, only then will the CPD break up a party and begin to think about arresting people.

Resident Assistants can be a constant thorn in student's sides. RAs theoretically exist to watch over new students and provide assistance in times of emergency. Unfortunately, there seem to be an abundance of RAs at Loyola who believe their job is to seek out every minor infraction perpetrated by students, and prosecute it to the fullest degree of the University's bylaws. The University does not make it easy on its RAs, of course, forbidding them to go to student-thrown parties on or off campus. Many students find themselves tip-toeing through their halls in order to avoid getting cited for a noise violation. In an ideal world, Loyola would place more trust in the ability of its undergraduates to act as adults.
