3 College Sophomore

Administration: Very lenient and the school really trusts its students. However any trouble results in strict measures.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: I've never had any negative experiences with strictness on campus, so the fact it isn't noticeable probably means WPI isn't that strict.

5 College Freshman

Administration: WPI protects its students. With that being said you will get written up if you are caught drinking. A lot of times RA's will make you get transported to the hospital if you are too drunk. But with that being said, if you can handle your stuff and are respectful you wont run into any problems.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

WPI is a typical college, in terms of its strictness. All residence halls are smoke-free, and any common sources of alcohol, like kegs or beer balls, are not permitted on campus-owned property at any time. WPI also has a rule involving academic honesty. Students who plagiarize, cheat, or commit another academic offense can face the Campus Hearing Board.
