4 College Freshman

Administration: The overall strictness on campus is great. I feel as if they are too lenient on their policy about underage drinking.

Administration: Public safety thinks that they are real police officers. I mean one or two of them but the rest of them have never even taken a criminal justice course, they are just mall cops, that take their job too seriously

3 College Junior

Administration: They are pretty lenient for the most part about all academic and social policies.

4 College Sophomore

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Shenandoah University doesn't have an extremely strict campus, but the rules are strong enough to keep everybody in line. Most rules come into play when it comes to campus dormitories. A student should never be too loud, smoke, or disturb others in residence halls because this is where a lot of studying takes place. When it comes to breaking residence hall rules, this is where the job of RAs becomes important (e.g., resident assistants). RAs monitor hallways and quads to make sure students are following the rules. They are not always strict, but they do their job if something is out of line.

Attendance to classes can be strict, too, depending on the teacher. Generally, a student should not miss more than 80 percent of classes, which averages to about six to eight classes throughout the semester; if a class meets two times a week, a student shouldn't miss more than two or four classes, and if a class meets only one time a week, a student can usually miss up to two classes. Failure to come to class results in the student dropping the class and receiving an "F."

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Drinking underage
  • Having TVs or music too loud past 10 p.m.
  • Parking in reserved spots or parking lots you need a pass for
  • Smoking illegal drugs or smoking in the dorm rooms
Visitation Policies
Students can have visitors of the same sex in their rooms, but the visitor cannot stay more than three nights. Everybody must respect the privacy of their roommates. If the roommate has an issue with the visitor(s), that may cause conflict. It is always good for roommates to communicate about visitors beforehand.
