Getting Along   

You don't have to know your neighbors to be a good one. 

Life is rarely free from conflict, but we can minimize it where we live by treating our neighbors like we want to be treated - with respect and consideration. It's really that simple. Realistically, though, not everyone does that. That's why we have laws. Like all residents, UCR students are expected to uphold state and city laws and ordinances, including those related to noise, traffic, parking, zoning, and consumption of alcohol. They are also expected to represent the university positively and follow Standards of Conduct.

You don't have to know your neighbor to be a good one.
