Drug Safety: Emory & Henry is a dry campus, meaning alcohol is not allowed on campus. However, people still tend to drink on campus and are not caught doing so (unless you decide to be stupid with it). There are parties off campus that people can decide to go to if they choose to, but peer pressure to do so is not a problem. People use marijuana on campus, but the policy enforcement on it is more strict than alcohol. People are more prone to be expelled for marijuana than they will be for an alcohol violation. Overall, some people drink but will not peer pressure you to do the same.

Drug Safety: It's just like any other college but most students know to leave campus instead of taking the risk on campus.

Drug Safety: "Dry Campus" – During orientation my first year the president of the college said something that describes drinking on campus very well: "Emory and Henry is a dry campus, it just happens to rain frequently." There is a no alcohol policy on campus, but that doesn't stop anyone from drinking. On campus if you aren't into the drinking scene it is relatively easy to avoid as long as you don't mind seeing the occasional drunk person. On the other hand, it is quite easy to find a place and people to drink with on campus or off if you wanted to. RAs tend to go with the don't ask don't tell/if they didn't see it, it doesn't exist. RAs don't like to do all of the paperwork involved in writing people up, but if you make a lot of noise and destroy campus property they won't have a choice.
Dugs aren't a big thing on campus; most people smoke if they do anything. I would say the campus population is about half and half between those who regularly get high and those who don't.
I never felt pressured to drink or to not drink, it was probably the people I hung out with. We had parties, but no one usually got sloppy drunk.
