so you really like going to Emory???
I also attend Oxford. A dry campus simply means that the school forbids possession and sale of alcohol on its property. If you're caught with alcohol at Oxford, you'll receive a citation. But like almost all non religious colleges, so many students drink that it's virtually impossible to enforce the rule unless RAs are going to do random room inspections, which would cause ire among most students, even those who abstain.
The reality is, Oxford is far tamer in terms of the party scene than most other colleges. Very few dorm parties get loud, otherwise they'll be shut down and the students cited. Sure there's weed, but most colleges smell like that on a Friday or Saturday night. Oxford isn't unique in that regard. In fact, Oxford's policies regarding marijuana possession/consumption probably serves as a deterrent to smoking.
Also Oxford is basically tobacco free. The majority of smokers have to go to the road or near the sidewalk if they need a cigarette. Technically speaking the roads are off campus so when students smoke they're not using tobacco on school grounds.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.
In general, Emory is not overly strict. Being a presitigious and exclusive school, the University holds its students to a high standard and does not feel the need to excessively monitor their behaviors. Unless you are engaging in obviously illegal behaviors in public or blatantly cheating, it is unlikely you will ever have any trouble with the faculty and or administration. While the campus police are often seen on and around campus, they seem to watch from a distance with the occasional traffic violation as an exception. Simply put, if you are smart about the things you do, you will not find yourself in trouble.
When you do get caught for various violations, there are different ways the school goes about it. Often you will have to meet with a faculty member involved with the student conduct counsel or attend a conduct counsel hearing comprised of peers who will listen to your side of the story and determine an outcome based on what they believe is fair. This is a unique way of going about things, and it is relieving to have peers who understand the situation as opposed to an older, out-of-touch staff member who is unable to relate.
