Making use of routine activities theory, this study analyzed the relationship between on-campus activities that are prohibited by university policies and those that are prohibited by local, state, or federal laws using routine activities theory. Participants were students enrolled in a highly selective, public liberal arts university. Correlation and regression analysis of the data supported two of three hypotheses: 1) that students who commit on-campus infractions prohibited by the university are likely to commit on-campus infractions prohibited by the law and 2) students who commit on-campus infractions probited by the law are likely to have an intensified propensity for criminality.
