12.2.1. Student Rights and Responsibilities

Among the enumerated rights of Oglethorpe students are freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, the presumption of innocence and procedural fairness in the administration of discipline, and access to personal records.

As members of the Oglethorpe community, students are responsible for maintaining high standards of conduct, honesty and respecting the privacy and feelings of others and the property of both students and the University. Students are expected to display behavior that is not disruptive of campus life or the surrounding community. They represent the University off-campus and are expected to act in a law-abiding and mature fashion. Those whose actions show that they have not accepted this responsibility may be subject to disciplinary action as set forth in the Code of Student Conduct (Sec. 12.4.).
