The mission of the Student Conduct Code is to help facilitate a safe, special living and learning environment in which students can pursue their education without undue interruption or distraction. For this to be possible, students are expected to be honest; to respect the rights and property of other members of the College and the local community; and to conduct themselves in a responsible manner. For many students, the college experience means an opportunity for increased freedom. Along with this increased freedom, comes the obligation of handling it responsibly. Students are expected to behave responsibly and will be held accountable for their actions.
