3 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness mostly depends on what part of campus you are on. If you live in an honors hall or engineering dorm, the resident advisors are very strict, but in places like Baker hall and Farrand hall, it seems there are no rules.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are the perfect combination of lenient and strict when it comes to our academic and social lives.

4 College Student

Administration: The administration is very strict about alcohol and drug use. Even though marijuana is legal in Colorado, the administration is still strict about it. There is no alcohol in any of the dorms and the RAs will write you up if they see it.

4 College Junior

Administration: I have had no difficulties with the administration, apart from one parking ticket that I felt should have been waived.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They have strict policies, however, numerous students still get away with smoking marijuana in the dorms, drinking, etc. When people are playing loud music, the RA or whoever is working at the front desk doesn't seem to do anything about it. I constantly hear ambulances on campus, which must mean many students are using alcohol in the dorms.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Whether it is for walking around with a cup of beer, making a double-lane turn, or simply looking suspicious, CU students soon learn that the Boulder police will get them one way or another. Campus police are extremely serious about drug use and drinking. Officers can be found wandering through the dorms with the intent to apprehend students engaging in illegal activities, so be prepared for random knocks on the door at all hours.

Once a student is written up by the Resident Assistant, or arrested by the officers, he or she must answer to Judicial Affairs. This is a committee that reviews students’ reported behavior. Small infractions, such as smoking marijuana or drinking in a dorm room, usually result in an informative alcohol class that costs about $100. In addition, the student must complete a given number of community service hours, according to the penalty committed. A policy was implemented called the “three-strikes” rule. According to the regulation, a student who is found to be in violation of the University’s drug and alcohol policies three times will be suspended for one full semester.
