Screw that. This is the important part:

Users agree not to take any actions that constitute inappropriate behavior including, but not
• Create, access, or transmit material considered sexually-explicit or pornographic.

No mention of angry masturbation though, so it's not a total loss

If the name of the school wasn't "Christian College" I would have guessed this to be a Islamic University in well, somewhere in the Middle East or Indonesia.

These aren't that unreasonable, tbh. I wouldn't like to go to this college, but it's still not that bad.

Big of them to let students dance out of school. Or, to put it another way, these arseholes want to control your life out of school, too.

Since they discourage any entertainment (or indeed anything at all) that involves sexual nature or gratuitous violence, does that mean they discourage students from going near the Bible?

6/30/2012 9:32:26 AM


So I'm not going to be able to play all three of the Adult Only titles to ever exist? Those fascists!

6/30/2012 9:59:41 AM


Anyone over eighteen who is dumb enough to sign on for this, deserves it.

6/30/2012 10:13:41 AM


Shit. I really wanted to do something about these fascists.

6/30/2012 10:25:07 AM

The Duelist

Why is this even on here? This isn't like the bullshit creationist text books at Bob Jones University that claim electricity has never been proven, or the psychotic mind-police rules of Pensacola Christian College (that doesn't allow students to go to movie theaters, or public libraries). While I definitely wouldn't go to this college, it's not like they're being fascists or anything.

The Duelist

Case in point; games that are rated "Adults Only" (or A.O.) are extremely rare these days. They more or less stopped them making them in the 90s. And the thing about them is that they're usually extremely gory and perverted. Like, 3D sex scenes and sexual torture, and other weird shit. The point; the rules are too strict, but this is a private institution, and for all we know, they just put this in the handbook so the parents will be pleased. Do they really enforce all of it?

6/30/2012 10:41:15 AM


What a boring college. Seems they've tried to remove everything enjoyable from the college experience.

6/30/2012 11:02:47 AM


Though they might not agree with the analogy, I as an active homosexual argue they have the same right to their lifestyle choices as I do to mine.
Meh. Not a 'darndest thing' at all.

6/30/2012 11:38:07 AM

Meh. It may the stupid, but they can run whatever kind of college they want to. Nobody who doesn't want to live by those rules has to go there.

6/30/2012 11:39:16 AM

Seen worse, particularly the rules at Liberty University: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/religious-right-nanny-state-view-liberty-university

Evidently they have the authority to inspect your private home if you're a commuting student.

Hey VFCC, the Taliban just called. They think you're backwards as shit.

6/30/2012 12:04:08 PM


I second The Duelist. I wouldn't go to this school but that doesn't mean they're crazy.

6/30/2012 12:42:07 PM

What, no bingo on Saturday night? What kind of college life is that?

Any dancing in social settings such as clubs, bars and lounges is considered inappropriate and is not permitted.

Crap, there goes all my square dancing fun.

But I guess they're right: it's too lewd.

Roleplaying is A-OK, though.

Who's up for Valley Forge D&D Night?

6/30/2012 1:25:16 PM


This college is absolutely no fun.

Fundies Make Me Sick

The only part of this I disagree with is the dancing. Once these students are off campus, they can dance any way they want and the school has no jurisdiction. What they do in private is no one else's business.

They're college students. That makes them adults. The college has no business doing this.

6/30/2012 1:53:42 PM


If I went to that college, nothing about my life would need to change. It seems I already comply with all these things anyway!

6/30/2012 2:03:50 PM

Oh My Dog!

Typical dreary Christian college stuff but meh.

6/30/2012 2:05:32 PM


Religious school.
I would've surprised if they didn't have ridiculous rules like that. I suspect they get violated on a regular basis.
