Four years ago this month, University administrators began implementing the current two-strike alcohol and drug policy the University of Mississippi still enforces.

The policy states that if a student is found in violation of the school’s alcohol or drug policy, he or she is issued a strike and therefore put on a probationary period. If the same student receives another strike within the probationary period, he or she is suspended from the University for the remainder of the current semester as well as the following fall or spring semester.
