4 College Student

Drug Safety: I have not heard of any troubles of drug use on campus. I really do not think there are many students that take part in taking drugs.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Absolutely no drugs or alcohol on campus. I only see a couple people smoke but far from the campus because it's a smoke free campus. I don't even remember the first or last time drugs were offered on campus at all.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Always feel safe and out of trouble.

Drug Safety: I have never heard of anyone doing or taking drugs at my school.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I never see anyone talk or use drugs on campus. Alverno has a very strict no illegal drugs policy. Mostly everyone is so focused on studying instead of partying all the time. If anyone were using illegal drugs on campus, then they would get expelled from the school immediately. Alverno is a very clean college.

There really is not a drug scene on campus, mostly because the administration and Residence Life staff is pretty strict and will lay the smack down on anyone caught with drugs. The only "drug" allowed on campus is alcohol. And, even then, there are strict conditions under which students may have it. Alverno is considered a dry campus, except for students 21 and older. Still, students who are "of age" must drink in their rooms with their doors shut, and if their roommate cannot legally drink, they are not allowed to drink while their roommate is present in the room.

Wine and other liquors are served at various dances and social events put on by the Alumnae Association and PAGE Board, but these events are quite few, and they need to get a special permit from the school. The campus is also smoke-free because the College wants its students to learn to have healthier lifestyles. Even though there are rumors of pot being on campus, marijuana is rare.
