Conduct and Discipline
Under the policy of the university, students enjoy the greatest degree of liberty consistent with high academic standards and orderly conduct. Each student is expected to conduct herself in such a manner as to uphold the good reputation of the University (and her fellow students). At the same time, she should be conscious of her responsibilities imposed by the law and the ideals proclaimed by the University. It is presumed that all students, as members of this Institution of the highest learning understand that maturity, responsibility due regard for rights of others are prerequisites of liberty.
The following rules are to be observed by the students for cherishing the noble cause of the university.
