Section II deals with extracurricular activities, including student government, student clubs and societies, student-sponsored forums, student publications, radio and television, and artistic presentations. Section III discusses student's political freedom on and off campus. Section IV discusses personal freedom in terms of student residences, personal appearance, pregnancy, and search and seizure. Section V deals with regulations and disciplinary procedures, including enacting and promulgating regulations, academic due process, double penalties, and law enforcement on campus. Section VI discusses students and the military, including extent of cooperation with the Selective Service System, unconstitutional reclassification, recruitment on campus, and ROTC.
