4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is mostly on your side and mainly enforces the educational aspect of things more than the social/drinking/sex/drug part. However, if you are caught with drugs you can get disciplinary action. The honor code here is unique in that none of our tests are proctored; we just sign a statement saying we upheld the honor code. But if you are found to have cheated you will get suspended, most likely.

5 College Freshman

Administration: It's very lenient where it should be: drinking, dorms, and social events. But it's also strict where it needs to be: the Honor Code. And most students understand and respect where the Honor Code comes from.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The Honor Code is taken super seriously here, but then some things are very easy to get away with. Unless you are in substance-free housing, it is typically okay to have alcohol in your dorm. As far as underage drinking goes, you only have to be 18 to get into the Eating Clubs, and from there they don't ID anyone for beer. Even if someone underage gets drunk and has to go to McCosh (the clinic on campus), they don't punish them for being underage. They want people to feel comfortable getting professional help when drunk rather than being afraid of the consequences of being underaged and risking major health issues.

5 College Junior

Administration: They have a safety first policy, which is excellent. If you bring someone to the health center who has had too much to drink, there is no punishment.

5 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Public safety is pretty chill and there are almost no consequences for drinking

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Few Princeton students will find themselves under the scrutiny of Princeton's campus police or University administration. Those students who do can be called in for any number of reasons, from climbing tent scaffolding at reunions to breaking into a dining hall after hours to get a scoop of ice cream. Room parties tend to be broken up not because of presumed underage drinking but because of noise complaints. Just as long as those students who chose to drink do so without breaking noise and open container regulations, Public Safety does not give them too much of a problem.

Campus police rely mostly on town police for taking care of major issues. The campus police focus more on problems such as noise complaints, which may result from parties where alcohol is served. The majority of calls to Public Safety are about thefts and alcohol-related issues, such as drunk students needing transport to McCosh Health Center.
