Most Bryant students have a "work hard, party hard" mentality, and partying for most students involves plenty of alcohol. There are always parties on campus on the weekends, and many students go to bars and clubs off campus, as well. Weeknight drinking is popular (as long as students do not have anything due the next day), from Tuesday senior nights at 'Rentes to "Wasted Wednesdays" to the most popular weeknight of them all, "Thirsty Thursdays." Despite this, students are actually very accepting of other students who choose not to drink. For nondrinkers or those who just need a night off, Bryant @ Night puts on alcohol-free weekend programming from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. every weekend and offers movies, rock climbing, field trips, etc., although these are not nearly as popular as the boozier socializing options. Marijuana is probably the second-most prevalent drug on campus, but it is more concentrated among a small part of the student body. In other words, you have the usual "stoners," who smoke weed all the time, and a smaller number of people who may try it from time to time. But the majority of the student body sticks to alcohol as their drug of choice. This may be partially due to the fact that drinking rules are a little more relaxed compared to Bryant's very strict drug policy (they have been known to involve state police in drug cases). Study drugs such as Adderall are fairly common and easy to come by, but you will typically only hear of people taking them during midterms and finals, if at all. And in terms of other recreational drugs, if they are there, they are kept out of sight. But as with anywhere, if you want something else, you can most likely find it. Potential punishments for violating Bryant's alcohol and drug policy include fines, probation, parental notification, and loss of housing.
