Rules for Resident Hall Life at Bob Jones University

cobobjon.jpgHere are the ones that caught my eye:

  • A student must live in one of the University residence halls unless he is living with parents or other close relatives (approved by the Dean of Men’s or Dean of Women’s office), is 23 years old or older, is married and over the age of 20, or is a graduate student.
  • Each night all students meet for prayer, either as a room or together with several other rooms.
  • Students are required to be in their own rooms and quiet at 11 pm. All lights must be out by midnight.
  • Students are required to keep their rooms clean and neat. Rooms are inspected daily.
  • Students may bring automobiles to campus. However, underclassmen (freshmen and sophomores) who are under 21 years old may use their vehicles only to drive home and for extension.
  • Cell phones are permitted. Students will be instructed in cell phone etiquette.
  • Posters of movie and music stars and fashion models are not permitted. The subjects of personal photos should exhibit the modesty and appropriate physical contact we expect from our students.
  • Music must be compatible with the University’s music standards:
    New Age, jazz, rock, and country music is not permitted.
    Contemporary Christian music is not permitted (e.g., Michael W. Smith, Stephen Curtis Chapman, WOW Worship, and so forth).
  • Televisions and DVD/videocassette players are not permitted in the residence halls; computer DVD players may not be used to view movies.
  • You may not possess or play computer and video games rated T, M, or A or having elements of blood and gore, sensual or demonic themes, or featuring suggestive dress, bad language, or rock music.
  • Residence hall students may not watch videos above a G rating when visiting homes in town and may not attend movie theaters.
  • All weapons must be turned in for storage. Trigger locks are required for pistols. Fireworks are not permitted on campus.


I also checked out the Dress Code section and found this statement interesting:

Abercrombie & Fitch and its subsidiary Hollister have shown an unusual degree of antagonism to the name of Christ and an unusual display of wickedness in their promotions. In protest, we will not allow articles displaying their logos to be worn, carried, or displayed (even if covered or masked in some way).
