4 College Freshman

Administration: This school does a lot to ensure the safety of its students. I loved the late walk program where guards were available to walk students home late at night from areas like the library.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It's strict when it needs to be in order to protect students from trouble with the law as well as outside threats.

4 College Senior

Administration: Aside from the overly strict parking violations, the campus strictness is great.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration could do better. They crack down on students for having harmless fun but don't focus as much on general university safety. It is very easy for anyone with harmful intent to get anywhere on campus. We have had way too many assaults in the past year which is not okay.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are lenient in most places you want it, but strict when needed.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Police reaction to law breaking depends on your record and what you’ve been caught doing. Underage drinking can get you anything from having your beer dumped out to being arrested, and if you’re a repeat offender who’s considered financially dependent, your parents will get a nice little letter from the Division of Student Affairs. Public drunkenness is not much appreciated, especially if you’re dumb enough to waltz across the UPD parking lot puking. Open containers (which are extremely common during football tailgating season) are most frequently just dumped out, although if you argue, you’ll probably get a citation. Drunk driving is likely to get you suspended from school, and drug possession usually means an arrest. One thing to keep in mind is that it’s not unusual for cops to bust down your dorm room door; more than a few RAs have been tipped off about illegal activities by the steady stream of noisy people with party cups wandering in and out of a room.

Also, it is pretty easy to drink underage at UF, and cops are somewhat lenient about that law. But beware: if you do get pulled over at night, be prepared to do a field sobriety test. Cops love to give these out for no reason other than just to be on the safe side. In addition, the University is supposed to be tobacco-free, but the cops never do anything about people smoking on campus.
