Courtesy and consideration for the reasonable expectations of others are essential if a harmonious atmosphere is to be maintained in an academic setting. While class/house
coordinators, campus security officers, members of the faculty and staff or the administrators will act to stop unreasonable noise, the primary responsibility for keeping noise at a reasonable level rests with each individual student. Noise should not be audible outside the classroom. Excessive noise, whistling, hooting, shouting or talking that unreasonably disturbs other students will not be tolerated.
