Christopher Newport University is a dry campus which is fine especially if you are looking for a school as such. The problem with the university is that if they do catch you with alcohol underage or not you are put on disiplinary probation and made to do community service work. If you are underage the CNU police inform the Newport News Police and you are sent to jail and then have to go to court. Even this would not be so bad if it wasnt for the fact that CNU police and RA's are constantly looking for these things. Police circle building waiting for a trip honestly the school crosses the line between a safe environment and harrassment to point. The fire marshall was sent to a frat house for the safety check snooping around he found a case a beer in the fridge everyone who lived in the frat house was kicked out of school. My boyfriend was 21 years old when the RA found a bottle of liqour in the room and he now has to perform 50 hours of community service with supervisors who treat him as if he were actually a criminal. The university has now built a bar on campus…which is puzzling to me as well…it turns out that CNU police will be stationed at the door and that if anyone tries to leave intoxicated they will be charged. O yea and the president of CNU Paul TRibble has a mini bar in his office…sort of hypocritical. And have fun getting into graduate school with any kind of charge on your record from newport news. Even off campus is not safe from harrassment a group of people from CNU were having a party off campus the CNU police came and held everyone there while they called the newport news police granted the kids should have known that the CNU police had no jurisdiction but i mean really. Kids are stopped maybe for speeding or normal traffic violation and then the CNU police proceed to find any reason to search their car. It's unreasonable if you are of age not to be able to have a beer while watching a football game, its ok for the city of newport news but apparently not for paul tribble. o yea and here's his reasoning…his dropout son was in northern va at college and he said when he went to visit him he had to step over beer cans and bottles…so i guess his own son ruined it for everyone. If you're looking for a fun atmosphere at college do not come to CNU unless your looking for lots of ice cream socials and harrassment this isnt the place for you.
responseYou're an idiot.
responseYou classify yourself as quite bright but you write as if you are still in elementary school.
responseThe person with the wordy response above is a complete moron. Honestly, I didn't even have to read the entire thing. Just seeing the beer, alcohol and cops as words on each line and the legal jargon was enough to know that you did not make an accurate assessment of CNU. You obviously are more worried about your social life and getting in trouble rather than being involved in what goes on at the school.
responseCNUPD does not report to Newport News Police. CNUPD Officers take people who break the law to jail themselves. In fact, Newport News Police bring THEIR arrests and summons to CNUPD to be forwarded to CHECS. Know your info before making a fool of yourself.

responseSounds like you are mad because you couldn't drink in your room. Any college who allows that would open up a huge can of worms. Hopefully you grow up and realize what is really important, you crybaby.
