We here at College Prowler read about a lot of schools across the country, and some of them have very unique policies in regards to everything from drugs to laundry. Some students view the policies as strict, others as just what makes their school special.
Here are 5 Quirky Rules on 5 College Campuses according to CP users:
1. Grinnell College‘s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
The fancy schmancy word for this rule is “self-governance,” where students are responsible for monitoring their own behavior and that of their fellow students. This is supposed to encourage students to speak up when there’s trouble, instead of being afraid of the repercussions from college authority figures.
2. No laundry on Sundays at Geneva College.
As a Christian school, Geneva observes Sunday as a day of rest, encouraging students to volunteer and interact within the Christian community on the Sabbath Day. However, in late 2012, the College amended the “rule,” removing “vacuuming” and “laundry” as specific prohibitions, although the rule to observe Sunday as a day of rest still stands.
3. Brigham Young University Idaho is probably not a fan of Starbucks.
Don’t even think about getting your coffee buzz on at this school: Drinking the beverage is prohibited.
These Dordt students are all wearing appropriate shirts:
5. Don’t forget to say hello at the University of Idaho.
Not necessarily a rule, but an obligation—students at the University of Idaho must say hello to the president when he addresses them on the Hello Walk. Otherwise, the president will follow students around until they do.
