4 College Freshman

Administration: Anything that may harm the student or the students around them are forbidden, as it should be. RAs are to write up and call authority if needed for underage drinking and drug use. Attendance is not mandatory it's usually based on the professor. Some profs take attendance, while others have clicker questions worth points everyday. They're usually lenient on quiet hours in the Residence Halls. During finals week however, they are very strict so as to allow students to study in peace. Parking sometimes can be a horrible experience. If you don't park in the right place or feed the meter, there will be tickets. No one has gotten away from PACE unscathed.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, MSU police concern themselves more with keeping the campus safe than they do with picking up intoxicated minors—despite what some students insist. Generally, those who aren’t making a scene or doing anything openly illegal have little to worry about from campus police. It’s not unusual to hear of someone getting an MIP, but there are more people who drink than people who get punished for it. The students who have the biggest problems are the ones who continually break the law, though this is a small minority at MSU.

Many students were angered when a “party noise ordinance” was instituted, and a few students were fined several hundred dollars for playing music too loudly or for having a few too many friends over. The initial anger at the ordinance has since died down, and campus enforcement officials have been giving students more breaks as far as noise is concerned. It’s a tough job to protect an area the size of MSU’s campus, and the majority of students have the utmost respect for the MSU campus enforcement. As long as you take reasonable precautions against police run-ins, you should have little to worry about.
