Well, in their defense, isn't that Falwell's school?

I would think that incoming students would know the rules, so it isn't like they're caught by surprise.

With that said, if it were 16 years ago all over again, I wouldn't go to Liberty on a dare. I would've paid tuition at the worst juco in the country before I would've accepted a free ride to live under those conditions. Granted, it wouldn't have been fun to explain all that to the parents back in the day, but good gosh.

At the same time, if I ever have a daughter, that might be a good school for HER to attend .... :-)

The school I went to was worse. That's what schools like that are like. Libery's not purely a bible college (Like I went to for my second degree), but it is similar. Light penalties, IMO
-----
Allowing unauthorized overnight visitor in residence room
-----

2 day suspension with a zero for any classes missed at my school.

-----
Possession and/or use of tobacco
-----

same for this one.

On the other hand, I'm not a baptist, so we could go to dances.

You make your choices about how you're going to live. My Daughter is going to a school like that for at least her 1st year. My son too. And willingly.

I think it would be fun to go there to see how many reprimands I could rack up in one day.

Hmmmmm... I think could do around 300 reprimands... no problem.

I would say you know what you're getting into if you choose to go to Liberty or a similar school...

We stopped pretending we would ratify Kyoto. We only spent $15 billion on AIDS in Africa. We did not take dictation from Paris. If we had done these things, it would minimize the world’s anger.

Is the world angry at Russia, which spends nothing on AIDS and rebuffed Kyoto? Is the world angry at China, which got a pass on Kyoto and spends nothing on AIDS for other countries?

Is the world angry at North Korea for killings its people? Angry at Iran for smothering that vibrant nation with corrupt and thuggish mullocracy? Angry at Syria for occupying Lebanon? Angry at Saudi Arabia for its denial of women’s rights? Angry at Russia for corrupt elections? Is the world angry at China for threatening Taiwan, or angry at France for joining the Chinese in joint military exercises that threatened the island on the eve of an election? Is the world angry at Zimbabwe for stealing land and starving people? Is the world angry at Pakistan for selling nuclear secrets? Is the world angry at Libya for having an NBC program?

Is the world angry at the thugs of Fallujah?

Is the world angry at anyone besides America and Israel?

Look. If you go there, it's not like you don't know what you're getting into. Many of us, myself included, would chafe at these rules but there are some who would be fine with it. With the state of many of the kids I see in school in Kansas, maybe it isn't such a bad idea. Really, alot of the problems we have are because we afford the rights and responsibilites of adulthood to people not ready for them. Am I advocating a Liberty set of rules? No. I am advocating doing what you want as long as you know the outcomes and as a society we inforce the rules. God am I getting old.

Geez, a curfew in college? 12 Reprimands plus a $70 fine for watching an R-Rated movie?! Some of these feel like treating people on the cusp of adulthood as young children.

As a Liberty Alum (and my BS in Communications really did wonders), I can speak on this. The rules are somewhat whacked, but those people that said that we know what we are getting into are mostly correct as well.

I didn't know that dancing and R rated movies were going to be punishable by flogging. That said, we all still did go to the dollar theater not five minutes away from the campus and see any movie we wanted. Of course there were rumors of RA's enforcing the R rating rule, but it never happened to me or anyone I knew. And you could go to any of several bars and dance if you really wanted to.

Let me say this and blow your minds. Liberty used to be WAY more strict. We're talking about no TV's in the dorm rooms. No long hair for guys. No real facial hairs on guys (or girls). It was only as I was leaving the school that TV's were allowed and the dress code was somewhat relaxed. So Liberty has made some concessions, but it is still a very strict school.

I'm just glad I didn't go to Bob Jones University :-p

Ideally, no rules anywhere would be needed but we are all prone at that age to be stupid. For some, it takes draconian measures to keep them from harmimg themselves. Others are more responsible. The rules when I went to school, not this bad, kept me from being too stupid.

I wonder if the R-rated applies to the Passion?
