3 College Freshman

Administration: Easy to get along with

3 people found this useful Report
3 College Senior

Administration: You have your individuals who want to see people in trouble and we have those who are more lenient. Really it's just the luck of the draw, however, most folks do not get into too much trouble

4 College Freshman

Administration: Radford is a very laid back place. The most people ever get in trouble for is drugs and alcohol use and even then you'll usually get a warning the first time or the first few times, don't abuse the fact that they give warning the first couple times though. Depending on the severity you could be suspended or expelled though. Besides that, parking can be pretty strict but i've only seen people be ticketed, never towed.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Lenient on things they shouldn't be, strict on things they shouldn't be.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Stay on their good side and you won't have problems

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Radford is incredibly inflexible when it comes to the rules, regulations, and standards set forth by the Standards of Student Conduct. Rules are ironclad, and punishment is swiftly doled out. Resident assistants (RAs) are enforcers of these rules, and while many students say their RA is cool, there is always one who will not bend or refuses to look the other way. Drugs and drinking are almost considered intolerable offenses, and city and campus police have no time for excuses or explanations. Students are not punished on a case-by-case basis, and nothing is taken on merit. All rules are applied the same way to everyone, no matter the circumstances.

Underage drinking and drug policies have been taken to heart by both the University and the local police, and arrests and charges have been more prevalent in recent years. The school also works with the local police force in order to charge students on campus for any off-campus offenses, such as underage drinking. Many students find these policies unfair, and not a weekend goes by without a story of a police bust at a party and many tickets being handed out.
