Administration: The administration is never overbearing and don't try to kill the campus vibe. All the administrators with whom I have ever interacted have always been very nice and helpful to me.

4 College Junior

Administration: The noise rules during quiet hours are enforced a lot which ends up breaking quite a few parties.

Administration: Public Safety really cares about your safety so do not act drunk in front of them because they will send you to the hospital.

1 College Freshman

Administration: Public Safety goes out of their way to break up the most innocent get togethers on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While parking illegally, having candles in your dorm room, and playing hall sports are things that RAs and the campus police are strict about, the thing that can get you in the most trouble is drugs and alcohol. Villanova once carried the title of a party school, but the administration has taken steps over the years to make it more and more difficult for students to drink. If you are smart about it and you aren’t noisy, you and your friends can have a fun night without running the risk of getting in trouble. However, if you get even remotely noisy, there is a good chance you’re going to get caught. Any alcohol-related offense runs up a fine and a course in alcohol education, so it’s better to avoid them completely.

The University carries strict penalties, but if you are smart and responsible, this won’t happen often enough to worry about them. Remember to be careful about what you become involved with and think carefully about whether or not your actions are worth the consequences that will most likely follow. Most of the students on campus are smart and responsible enough to know the limits, so for that reason, nothing ever really gets out of control.
