Administration: Parking is a big deal on campus due to the number of facility and student drivers outnumbering the parking garages on campus. They tow away vehicles that are not moved during game days.

You can fail a class or get kicked out of UT for cheating on a test of exam.

I forgot the penalties for drug and alcohol use in dorms and never really heard any of my friends using them, but they make us do a alcohol educational module to know the dangers and what to do in certain situations.

Administration: Required attendance is dumb. If I'm paying for courses, then I should be able to choose if/when I attend them.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

It is not a good idea to drink or do drugs openly on campus, or at least not outside. Drinking is technically not allowed in dorms on campus, nor are drugs allowed in private dorms (alcohol is allowed in some private dorms), but students definitely both drink and do drugs in their dorm rooms. Generally, though, the police are only called if the RAs decide to call them.

At the football games, be sure not to carry alcohol in your purse or in your boots, because many students are searched and patted down. Many people get drunk prior to the football game at a tailgate party or house party, and then they just arrive at the game drunk. The thing that UT is known to be most strict about is parking, and UTPD loves to write parking tickets.
