The U has a strict zero-tolerance policy toward alcohol on campus and in the dorms. But because most alcohol-related incidents are simply alcohol-related and don’t result in vandalism, sexual assault, theft, or other crimes, cops and U administrators are content to look the other way most of the time. But heaven help you if your drunkenness leads you to make a public nuisance of yourself, or you even just bother your neighbors; cops pay a lot of attention to parties on Greek Row, where complaints from the neighbors about noisy parties have created an atmosphere of distrust and resentment.
When it comes to campus strictness, the so-called “Parking Nazis” are at the top of the list of villains. If you go 10 seconds over on your parking meter or your parking pass is not visible, expect a ticket. If it’s your third unpaid ticket, expect to be booted.
