We all know that as a freshmen you are going to break the rules in the dorm. It could be having a boyfriend/girlfriend stay in your room, drinking alcohol, burning candles or even smoking pot. I’m telling you that you probably won’t care much about the rules.
And I don’t think you should (to an extent). Unless you are dumb enough to get caught, you won’t. If you do, you will get a slap on the wrist. I’ve known people who were in trouble with residential life more than 15 times and they weren’t kicked out. That’s ridiculous!
Lastly, the dorms aren’t Animal House, but they are fun. It is where you meet friends, socialize and unite as a floor. The RA is there to help retain you at the university and wants you to have fun, just don’t get caught.
During my freshmen year, there was always some form of alcohol in my room. It was usually vodka or a good kind of beer. I was never caught with it. Also, there was a policy that did not allow girls in your room past 2 a.m. but I violated that rule as well. In college, who cares?
During my freshmen year, we got new mattresses and the old ones lined the halls for a day before they were removed. At this point, a few members of the floor decided to create fire hazards with them in the elevator landing, common room and hallway. I know this is not that big of a deal, but this is the only rule that I documented being broken…
