3 College Student

Administration: pretty strict with parietals and people get written up for some pretty stupid things..they look for people to transport and even people who aren't that drunk can get transported for doing one thing wrong..dorms are pretty strict but definitely easy to get away with stuff

5 College Freshman

Administration: No one really cares what you do unless you're obnoctious about it or sick. Keep noise to a minimum, and be careful with things like alcohol and drugs and no one will bother you.

3 College Senior

Administration: Average pain in the butt

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Fun. Endless Fun. And smiles. Many.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness at my school has taken a step forward in ensuring campus safety.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Policies are in place to punish miscreants, from parking to drug use, but enforcement varies. Campus security will hand out parking tickets without hesitation, but they will very rarely conduct searches for suspected drug use. Usually, a warning is given before any penalties are assigned for offenses. If you are written up for an infraction, the fines are steep. A first time alcohol infraction costs a couple hundred dollars and a meeting with your Hall Director. A transport to the hospital for an alcohol related occurrence can be $1,000. The best way to avoid fines and writeups is to not break the rules, but if you are breaking the rules, avoid being blatant. Most agree that drinking is generally overlooked unless it is disturbing others. However, with various new alcohol policies, including the banning of hard alcohol on campus and a policy which states that any student over 21 may have no more than six beers in their possession at one time, students are on alert more than ever.

One rule the Providence students detest is parietals. Members of the opposite sex are not allowed in rooms after 12 a.m. during the week and 2 a.m. on the weekends. Although this rule is hardest to enforce in coed dorms, it is strictly enforced in all-female dorms, where the guest log makes it fairly simple to track down vagrant boys. Enforcement of college rules really comes down to the Resident Assistants, although Hall Directors and campus security will occasionally fill out reports, as well. Laid-back RAs are just as common as strict ones, so it’s really the luck of the draw. It is better to just be smart about rule-breaking.
