Administration: I want to be able to have fun in my dorm room. Not have to worry about breaking rules

4 College Freshman

Administration: depends what dorm you are in, my RA and DPS was extremely lenient on most things, usually only got mad when there was too much noise. i know some people have gotten in trouble for alcohol in the dorm rooms, but that was only when it was in clear sight. be safe and smart and you wont have any problems.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Campus strictness really lies in Michigan's plagiarism policy. Michigan takes academic honesty extremely seriously. Every class scans reports, papers, and essays for plagiarism. If caught plagiarizing, students will be referred to the dean and run the risk of failing the class, and in some cases, being kicked out of the University. In terms of drinking, as long as you’re responsible, students agree that campus strictness shouldn’t be a problem. The University's Department of Public Safety (DPS) roams the dorm halls on weekends, occasionally citing students for possession of alcohol or other substances, but only if they are notably rowdy and disruptive. DPS is mainly there to ensure the safety of the students. The state of Michigan's medical amnesty policy helps create a safe atmosphere in the case of underage drinking, allowing students to call for medical attention without legal repercussions. Off-campus parties in frats are rarely broken up, and Ann Arbor officers are usually lenient. Students at Michigan can feel free to have a good time, knowing that if anything should happen, authorities value their safety above anything else.

Did You Know?
Now a virtually dead Michigan tradition, the "Naked Mile" happens on the night of the last day of classes each winter semester (in April). What used to amount to hundreds of naked runners and thousands of peeping spectators has now been quelled to a few courageous (and often jail-bound) daredevils. Either way, it used to be tolerated by the cops until the University administration cracked down (no pun intended) on it in the past few years. Check out for more information and racy pictures!
