3 College Freshman

Administration: Just don't do something stupid and get caught otherwise the police will definitely read up the fun.

4 College Senior

Administration: Being apart of the Rawls College of Business, you create a new standard for yourself. Rawl's faculty want to to strive for honor, and become the best individual you can. They push us because they know we can handle it. They will do let you slack or cheat yourself. They really do care about our future. If ever caught cheating, it is an automatic dismissal from the class and more than likely the college. Again, transferring in, I do not know as much as the underclass men might, I just know about the policies at the Rawls.

3 College Freshman

Administration: While we do emphasize striving for honor highly, cheating is overlooked.

4 College Senior

Administration: I believe that our campus is very strict, however I think there are more stricter school out there!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They have a no alcohol policy in the dorm, but you can still go out off campus and drink. Just keep in mind that they consider your body a container, which means that if your body contains alcohol in the dorm they still give you a ticket. Luckily they usually don't stop students unless they are belligerent.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

Most Texas Tech students speak favorably of campus strictness on campus. Generally, the student mantra is, "No one will bother you if you don't bother anyone else." As long as you stick to the rules, you should be fine. If you respect the police, they will respect you. However, campus police can be pretty strict in regards to underage drinking and drug use, so if you are going to partake in either of these activities, be careful. Overall, the campus police really just want to keep students safe, so they're overly strict about drugs and alcohol for a good reason.

In terms of things to be wary of, parking can be a big deal. If you do not have a parking pass, the police will write you up, no questions asked. Some students call the parking cops, "Parking Nazis." In terms of academics, the University has an academic integrity code. There is absolutely no tolerance for cheating, no matter what class you may be in. Professors will run papers through a computer system that reads them and will highlight things directly taken from the Internet, so chronic cheaters and plagiarists should probably look elsewhere.
