4 College Sophomore

Administration: I, myself haven't had any trouble when it comes to school policies but generally, the school's policies are enforced but not strict enough to affect how we carry ourselves everyday.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: typically people aren't too strict, as long as you aren't acting like an idiot. they will normally let you get away with things if you are respectful and not sloppy

3 College Junior

Administration: Campus strictness varies across the board in school policies that affect us as students. The dry campus aspect of UT is quite ridiculous because it is in effect except on days with football games. If you are going to be lenient and supportive of drinking on certain days, that takes away the legality in general of the policy.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There doesn't seem to be any kind of policies that have interfered on my experience but I have not heard of all the policies, nor am I planning to.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Not the best, but not the worst.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There was a time when the UT Police were rather lax, but times have changed. Receiving the title "biggest party school" has been a blessing, as well as a curse, in that strictness has definitely increased. There are more police on campus, and they are more than willing to seek out those who are causing trouble. There is a certain level of liability connected with a campus of UT's size, and they are heavily pressured by administration to make UT a safer campus.

Most students will say that with a school of UT's size, it is impossible to totally regulate drinking. The campus police know that if they sought out and punished every crime that was committed, their lives would be those of endless headaches, paperwork, and sleepless nights. As long as UT does not enlist the help of Batman, Spiderman, and Superman to fight campus crime, parties and drinking will inevitably ensue. As long as you are smart about having a good time by knowing your limits, obeying and respecting the law, and staying quiet (a lot of big busts begin as noise violations) you will never come face-to-face with Johnny Law. Be aware of campus rules and policies about alcohol. They are rather strict, and knowledge of the rules might keep you out of trouble.
