5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The only way you'll know if any of the students in my school take drugs or drink alcohol is if they actually came up to you and told you otherwise there are no signs of any of that stuff.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Personally I have never experienced or seen any kind of drug or alcohol related issues at Hunter. Most students I know are over age and go out for a drink at bars legally off campus.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Since I go to a commuter school, it is hard to get involved in the social scene. But, if you come to a college party, it is very easy to have a good time without drugs or alcohol. Everybody is very accepting of any kind of lifestyle.

Because Hunter does not really have a campus, there are few places for a “drug scene” to exist, and whatever students do outside of the classroom is their own business. The College became a "dry campus" in 2009, which means that there are no more student government parties with alcohol, although clubs may still apply to host events with alcohol on campus.

Drug use does occur in the dorms, despite prohibition. However, there is no pressure to engage in it. For a student who has no particular wish to engage in drug use, he/she can avoid coming in contact with it, although one might occasionally smell suspicious odors wafting on certain floors. However, security around the main campus and dorms ensures that this risky behavior will probably be addressed if one is caught.
