    Hey All,

    Just moved in to college. What do you think about looking at porn online while in college living in the dorms.

    Im mainly talking about being connected to the internet at the school, but using your own laptop to look at it.

    Thanks

    As long as you are respectful of your roommate and aren't looking at porn and jacking off when he's in the room (unless you have an arrangement allowing that) you should be fine. The art of hiding your porn and jacking off from your roommate is one of many important skills learned at college.

    Hey dude....
    My college doesn't check for that stuff and I didn't know other colleges did either. It's college. Everyone, or mostly everyone is an adult so why would they care. It's legal so what can they do about it?!?

    I would be surprised if any college has ever kicked someone out for looking at LEGAL porn, even if it does violate the school's "moral standards."

    I mean, you hear stories of Christian colleges kicking out students for finding out they were starring in (gay) porn, but do you really think no student at, say, Ohio State has ever looked at porn on the school's network connection?

    Unless you are doing something illegal, your tuition dollars are pretty important to them. You are taking a chance, but I think, in reality, it is a pretty small one.

    As a legal technicality note, I would like to see a school try and kick a student out for this, as they would likely argue that a student was using "the university's network" to access porn. However, a legal counterargument would be that a student is paying for access to that network, so they have a right to use it as they see fit, as long as it doesn't violate the law. Of course, honor codes and contracts could also come into play, but would a school bother for someone looking at legal porn? Not unless they has other reasons for wanting to be rid of someone.

    there's no way that the administration is going to fuck you over for looking at porn. there wouldn't be any students around if they did. what school are you going to by the way - i'm in college myself.

    I work at a major university and generally if it is your own computer and no one complains (ie: you arent surfing porn while in class) then the university doesnt care. If you are doing it on a school computer your technology priviledges can be suspended and you can be forced to take a class about proper use of technology in the university (with the kids who get caught illegally downloading music/movies).

    I'd wager that the worst the school could do (if they ever even notice) is do something like limit your bandwidth or whatever. I'm sure you'll be fine

    at my university most of the porn could be found saved on the network, lol. As people have stated above. The University isn't going to be tracking that stuff.

    I don't see how you'll get through college without it!

    Seriously though, the one thing you could be disciplined for is downloaded lots of illegal content, like bootlegged movies. That really is illegal and some schools crack down on it. They can tell because those downloaders use up much more bandwidth than most.

    I never had any problems with it at the university I went to. I had my own PC, and of course, never used any computers in the tech labs around campus to look at porn. My freshman year, I was required to have a room mate, so I didn't get to very often, then. Actually, I don't think I looked at any porn in my freshman year.. But if you've got more space (unlike me; I had to share a very small room), you might be alright, even with room mates. But after my freshman year, I had my own place, so I had plenty of privacy.

    This skill is also valuable if you get married and your spuse does not approve of porn...

    hahahaha that would make for the biggest scam ever. EVERY male student looks at porn and many female as well. if they were to expel you over looking at porn then everyone would pay their 30 grand and get expelled. what the fuck are you smoking?

    Currently in college on campus. They have logs of everything you do but they dont look at the logs. Its more if you try to do some terrorist stuff then they can look up and see you were looking up how to make explosives and stuff. Most libraries do it since the patriot act was passed anyway. Porn...fine. At my school they give you a warning for file sharing programs such as limewire or morpheus. After that there's a 25 dollar fine. Porn is okay

    Sounds like you're going to Liberty U or Oral Roberts. They don't have porno in christian colleges.

    Porn is completely legit. I'm on a college campus right now as I type this and there's a very good chance I'll be looking at porn shortly after this. They don't care. As long as they get my tuition dollars, I can look at as much porn as I want as long as it isn't causing network issues.

    With the exception of hardcore colleges of the religious variety, you're unlikely to be disciplined for porn. Everyone needs to get off sometimes!
