3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't really feel their presence at all. Whether that's a good thing or not I'm not quite sure.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I have not been on other campuses as a college student, so I would not know how our security compares to that of other colleges, but so far I think that the idea is to keep the campus safe, but still to allow students to have fun. I think that having all the fraternities dry should not be a policy in place, but I think it does serve a purpose.

Administration: Campus security is pretty slow at coming to help, but they are all very kind.

4 College Freshman

Administration: RAs are, for the most part, super friendly and helpful. During orientation, there are quite a few safety meetings that students are expected to attend, with regards to drugs, alcohol, sexual harassment (Consent and Green Dot), and acceptance of others (I Am Puget Sound), and the RAs regularly host floor meetings to deal with issues dorm residents may be dealing with. The school aims to keep everyone safe and healthy, and they're aware that people will drink and use drugs, so instead of blockading students from these substances, they offer suggestions on how to do it safely.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness at Puget Sound is very lenient, but the right amount of force is used. No complaints what so ever. The rules never have affected the students negatively.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students may break the rules, but they do not get caught often unless its their freshman year and they live in a dorm. In that case, if the RA is at all savvy, they may write up the student(s). If this happens, the student(s) must appear in front of the Honor Court, which is made up of students from ASUPS (student government) who colloborate to figure out a solution to the particular situation. This may be changing dorms, writing an apology letter, expulsion (depending on the severity), or a number of other consequences. After freshman year, students can get away with pretty much anything as long as it doesn't directly affect the school.

If you live far enough away, security won't bother you, but then you have the police to deal with in regard to noise complaints. Depending on the neighbors, it's relatively easy to have people over, as most houses close to campus are rented by students. University of Puget Sound is not lenient, however, on plagiarism and will suspend or expell students depending on the situation. All of the school policies are contained in a book called The Logger, which is distributed to students every year. The University has an extensive Integrity Code outlining all of its expectations of students and describes sanctions like probation, eviction, and expulsion for code violations.
