4 College Freshman

Administration: My house fellow was chill, which made for more responsible actions.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I'd say for social things, it's not very strict. As everyone says, drinking is huge here and drugs aren't that uncommon too. Each dorm is different for how strict they are. For academics and honor codes, they're pretty strict from what I can tell, which is good.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think everyone involved in Wisconsin wants you to succeed.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think people get away with a lot on campus. In my experience, I haven't heard of people getting in trouble for drinking, noise, drugs, etc. The campus police are very good about keeping us informed about crime and sexual assaults.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Campus Police tend to have a relaxed reign over the student population. As a result, there isn't a sense of strictness on campus. Bar and house parties are the most common places police will be interacting with students. Campus Police will come down on underage drinking and the use of fake IDs. Apart from that, though, students feel free and able to do what they choose.

As long as you use some amount of common sense or discretion, you really won't have any problems with Campus Police or strictness. However, those who decide to drink underage at a loud party will run the chance of getting busted and then fined. Similarly, if you're caught using a fake ID, consequences await you. In terms of academics, the campus is rigid. They follow the `zero tolerance' rule that only allows you one act of academic dishonesty. After being caught, you are expelled, and the offense stays on your academic record. Weigh every option and the potential consequences before deciding to do something potentially illegal.
