Since UM is a state school, the campus and local police can search suspected minors in possession. Since UM is not a religiously-affiliated school, UM does not have an overwhelming number of rules or limitations. The campus police are the least lenient about illegal parking, though; they seem to take pleasure in giving out $25 tickets, ugly pink slips of paper tucked on the front windows of cars.
Underage students caught drinking in the dorms are required to attend a "Self Over Substance" class, which not so much punishes, but rather educates students on the consequences of abusing drugs and alcohol. Visitation policies in the dorms tend to be lenient; guys and girls stay over all of the time. Students generally feel free to do whatever they want, and missing class, being hungover in class, or sleeping with members of their class are commonplace, not illegal, and barely stigmatized actions. Best of all, the campus police help students in need, walking students across campus, giving them rides if they cannot drive themselves, and finding students' stolen goods. UM students do speculate that outright favoritism does exist, with athletes tending to benefit most from all of the above.
