Students report that the school’s rules are, in most cases, a bit harsh, though the rules have become more fair and easier to manage in recent years, after the administration recently revisited its alcohol policy. The enforcement of the University rules seems to depend largely on circumstance, and there are no hard and fast guarantees as to who is going to let you get away with what. Many students, for example, report that the campus police are more lenient than many of the RAs. Thus, the general attitude toward discipline on campus seems to be a sort of studied ambivalence, as the authorities seem willing to let you get away with most anything—once.
When you get right down to it, there’s not too much to worry about, unless you’re planning on committing a string of violent felonies—in which case your biggest problem is probably not the University’s decision. Underage drinking violations and noise violations are by far the most issued sanctions on campus. In most cases, it’s going to take quite a gross act of impudence to acquire either one. The Department of Public Safety and the Residence Life staff are well aware that they’re regulating a college environment, so you’ve really got to make a hellacious racket to get in trouble for noisiness. As for alcohol violations, common sense is usually enough to keep you out of trouble.
