One might think that a campus like Alfred would be driven to drug use simply for the lack of activities. On the contrary, Alfred students seem much more interested in innovating new and dangerous winter sports than getting high. Don't get it twisted—students are champion drinkers. Purchasing your own mug from Alex's is a rite of passage. Still, although alcohol and marijuana are big on the weekends, most students leave them there.
It would appear that the most prominent drug use occurs in the art school. Here, substances are welcomed by a certain crowd as creative stimulants. The rest of the population, however, seems to fare well enough without it. The great thing about Alfred is that there's very little peer pressure to get into, well, anything, drugs included.
