Temple has its share of rules, but in comparison to other colleges, Temple is not strict at all. People have escaped without getting in trouble for streaking, drinking in broad daylight, and hanging out in buildings past closing. Students will, only briefly, see the face of a police officer during parties and traffic jams. They don’t want anything to happen that will make their jobs more difficult. There’s usually a lot of traffic on 13th Street, not just with the cars, but also with the pedestrians. Cops are always at the corners blowing their whistles and arguing about parking zones. Students find these to be the most prevalent examples of the police working and being a bit strict, but it is all done out of the safety for Temple students.
Despite being fairly lax on rules, Campus Security is almost always watching. There might not be Temple police or guards around, but at certain "secretive" locations at school, there are cameras outside of the buildings. The cameras work as a deterrent, keeping students from doing anything that may be frowned upon in fear that it may be caught on tape. Most students don’t have a problem with the level of security, rather they dislike the inconsistency, but from what they have said, they don’t seem to see a need for more strictness.
