3 College Sophomore

Administration: We have a 2-strike policy.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are tons of strict rules; some are necessary (underage drinking) and some seem unnecessary (visitation). I understand that the university wants to make sure that all residents are safe and accounted for. They do not want any extra liabilities on their part; therefore, they enforce strict visitation rules. But I personally feel as though because I am in college, I should be allowed to have a guest over at any time of night. This is not my parent's house. I am not under their rules, yet the university rules are a lot more strict than my own parents.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They take some rules too seriously, such as visitation and parking, while drugs and alcohol are threatened a lot but growing.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The campus is pretty strict when it comes to most things, but it's mainly concerning when you're living in the dorms your freshman year. PARKING SERVICES IS THE WORST, AND THEY WILL TICKET YOU ANY CHANCE THEY GET.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The dorm strictness rules are so annoying! You have to check visitors in and no member of the oppisite sex can stay later than midnight (2 on weekends) and overnight visitors must be registered 48 hours ahead of time. Everything else is ok though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The strictness on campus depends on what you’re doing and when you’re doing it. If it’s a football weekend and you’re walking around the Grove, don’t be naïve and think that all of those beautiful women you see are happy just because they’re watching football. It’s because they have a little something extra in those red Solo cups they’re holding. The alcohol policy is really confusing, and it seems as if even the campus police don’t understand it. Don’t be surprised if you end up breaking the rules without meaning to do so. The typical rule of thumb on game days and at parties is this: if it’s in a cup, it’s fine. Drugs are a whole different story. The University Police Department, the University itself, and the Oxford Police Department all take drugs and drug-related paraphernalia very seriously. There are stiff fines that accompany these policies, as well as possible jail time or expulsion from the University.

Another thing that you don’t mess around with in Oxford is drinking and driving. Over the past few years, there have been several alcohol-related accidents. The University and the city both created an alcohol task force to figure out how to handle drinking and driving. They’ve tried to help students understand that if they do go out and get drunk without having a designated driver, then there are still other options. Take Rebel Ride or call a cab so you don’t risk an accident. It’s safe to say that strictness waivers between a fairly lenient drinking policy (when no driving is involved) and strict visitation and dorm rules.
