1 College Freshman

Administration: They are strict about the wrong things. My suitmates used pot al the time and had liquor bottles in the bathroom and we reported them to my RA but nothing happened, but we had two people over after curfew and we got a citation.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: It's ok but they treat alcohol as if it does no harm, and you only get a citation and a little fine, but they treat the use of pot as if you are a sub human garbage who has no moral fiber

5 College Junior

Administration: Academic integrity (i.e., plagiarism) is at the utmost importance here at OU.

3 College Junior

Administration: I would have to say parking, the lack of space to park in being a commuter is pretty annoying. You pay to have a sticker but they do not guarantee you a spot to park. Also, if you do not find a parking spot you will be late to class, causing your attendance to go down, and making you miss part of the lecture.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think I'm one of those very quiet kid who doesn't make any trouble for myself and others. I've never been into any violation which affect me with my academic or social lives.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
Overall, the campus is very lenient about enforcing its alcohol rules. Drinking is a traditional aspect of the college experience in the minds of most administrators and enforcers, and it happens constantly on campus. Rather than fight a difficult battle that could not be won, the OU administration follows a policy of lax enforcement except in situations regarding safety. If students wish to drink illegally, that is their prerogative, but the University retains the right to disallow drinking on campus and will more actively enforce its policies if the drinking threatens to harm people or property. Tailgating parties on football game days typically involve large quantities of alcohol, as do Greek parties and house parties. The University accepts this but is more inclined to stop it if the drinking becomes rowdy. Most non-alcohol rules are fairly leniently enforced by Resident Advisers, who are willing to give students second chances. If a visitor leaves the dorms an hour late due to honest mistake, RAs rarely will write a citation. Most classes allow for several absences, and some lectures do not take attendance at all. However, there are a few classes that subtract from a student's final grade for each excessive absence, so students should not miss unnecessarily.
