Though UCLA dubs itself a zero-tolerance institution, most Bruins find the authority system to be decently lax. While in Westwood and going between apartment parties, students should be cautious not to stumble or tote the ominous red cup because police (however lenient they may be) are always present. Cops have been known to break up such events as Undie Run, but the attitude toward them is generally one of tolerance, as they surely let students have their fun. And, of course, the UCPD responds quickly and efficiently when called. As far as parties, apartments get as rowdy as they like with hardly any police interference. The newly instated chancellor, however, has worked to institute policies that have severely decreased the intensity of Greek events and increased security at these parties.
Currently, security is relaxed in most dorms. Drinking in the rooms is arguably the No. 1 cause of citations, and punishment really depends on your respective RA's (resident assistant) attitude: some dish out hours of bathroom cleaning, and others inflict no sanctions at all. On most occasions, RAs are students too and respect their fellow Bruins' right to rage. If drinking is concealed and kept quiet in dorms, it's almost impossible to encounter trouble. Visitation policies make it easy to let guests share in the UCLA experience.
