4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: They enforce first years to complete "alcohol.edu" in order to become aware with what can happen when using drugs.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Arcadia is very strict when it comes to drugs and alcohol use. If you are caught on campus doing any of those things then you can go up against the school board and possibly be expelled. You don't really notice it on campus at all though. Most people don't use it and if many do you don't see it.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm not entirely sure what to rate but there no real peer pressure.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at Arcadia isn't like typical campuses. Arcadia is considered a dry campus. Not a lot of people drink on campus. And if they do, it's either one of the sports teams when they are having a party, or upperclassmen who are off campus and are of age. If people are caught drinking underage, the school does take action. If it gets to the point where students need to go to the hospital, they are taken right away; their health is the number one priority of the school.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They talk about it, but it's often gotten away with.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Alcohol is the most popular drug to abuse. Drinking is not as big as at most schools, though, confined to mostly weekends. There aren't many places to have big parties at, so if people do drink, it's usually with a few friends. Marijuana is another big drug, but it's not a huge problem. Not many people get caught with anything other than alcohol, and drugs are not a big thing at Arcadia. Drugs are not a problem at Arcadia, and it is easy to stay away from them if you need to. There are always crazy stories about harder drugs on campus, but they are usually just rumors. Alcohol is the biggest drug, as with any college, but it has not caused too many problems.
