Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are not used on campus.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have not seen people drinking alcohol or doing drugs

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The use of drugs and alcohol on campus is forbidden and is enforced. Because the campus is pretty conservative, there is a lot less drinking and drugs than in other schools. Peer pressure swings the other way--the pressure here is not to drink and do drugs.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I never notice any problems, and if there is one it is dealt with swiftly and justly.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol use is not prevalent, but occasionally one does hear mention of it.

Caffeine does get pretty popular around midterms and finals; otherwise the drug scene is rather tame. Illicit alcohol is the most dominant part of a behind-the-scenes reality. A few students take the trouble to hide alcohol in their sock drawers or under beds—perhaps the same group that looks decidedly hung-over on a Sunday morning.

The Grove City College Smoker’s Club has created an interesting, but entirely legal, scene. Around 30 students have brought out their cigars and pipes for a Wednesday evening smoke fest. However, a couple other, less legal smokers, do float around campus. Despite an occasional suspicious smoker, students could easily finish their college career without knowing the handful of students who smoke pot and do other “hard” drugs.
