In 2008-2009, Off-Campus Student Services (OCSS) in the Offices of the Dean of Student Life created a three-hour class for off-campus Texas A&M students who have been found in violation of College Station’s noise ordinances. The course was developed in conjunction with the police department, OCSS, Student Conduct Office in Student Life, the Texas A&M Student Government Association, and the municipal court. A College Station judge can assign the course as an option for first-time violators. Students pay to enroll in the class, and if they successfully complete it, the judge will reduce their sanction. The workshop curriculum includes discussion of the city codes, seeing the issues from another’s perspective, being a good neighbor, conflict management, and party planning skills.
