It's rather strict, but they let you know what you are signing up for and it holds well to the Adventist beliefs.

The policies are strict, but the enforcement of them aren't. Some departments are more disciplinary than others as are individual teachers in said department. But overall if you aren't in class most professors aren't hounding you to follow the rules. The deans however keep an eye out for each student even outside of the dorms and student events and can fine you if you're on any school property and aren't following policy.

They do a great job at keeping campus safe and orderly.

The rules and regulations at this school pertaining to what students wear, where they go, and where they live are incredibly strict. There is a no jewelry policy, no shorts, no holes in jeans, etc. If you are caught with either of these, you will be fined. Students must sign out if they want to leave for the weekend and obtain a Dean's permission. You cannot sign out to a place where there will be mixed company unless there is a parent or guardian present, and even still, in some cases, the dean will call your parent of guardian to make sure it is okay. You also must live on campus until you are 23 years old unless you live with a parent or guardian.

Southern is known for being one of the more conservative SDA universities. Ideally, the school would like to have a alcohol-free/drug-free campus, but let's be honest, students will always try to push the boundaries and break rules. If caught, however, they face severe punishment often resulting in expulsion from the university. Room checks are done from time to time if a student is suspected of having drugs or alcohol. If you're there for the education, it's really just best to avoid these things and save yourself the trouble.
Southern also has a strict curfew for those living in campus housing. Depending on age, class standing, and grades, students will be given a curfew anywhere from 11pm to 1am (this applies to Saturday-Thursday nights, Fridays have a 11pm curfew for everyone). Students are allowed four Minors (meaning they arrive within an hour after set curfew i.e. have an 11pm curfew but arrived at or before 11:59pm), but on the fifth violation a fine or other sort of punishment will be imposed. Students are allowed to sign out of the dorms or request a late leave by getting approval from a dean, so this is usually the best way to avoid most curfew violations.
Parking rules are also strictly enforced by Campus Safety. This typically tends to be the one that causes greatest friction students and Campus Safety. My advice, know where you can and cannot park and don't expect to be able to reason with Campus Safety.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
