4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: In general, drinking and smoking is not shut down automatically, but only if someone is going to get hurt. We have proctors instead of RAs and they will party with everyone else and just make sure no one gets seriously hurt. This environment means that students take it upon themselves to drink more responsibly. There is also no peer pressure at all to do things. I have friends who don't drink, I myself don't smoke, and it never causes uncomfortableness. At parties there will often be nonalcoholic drinks as well so everyone can take part.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is not really any enforcement. The dorm proctors who are your RA will also drink or smoke with you. Whether there is a drug or alcohol scene entirely depends on which dorm you live in. But besides Linde, even if you live in a dorm that drinks or smokes a lot, it won't be a deal if you don't.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is prevalent on the campus over the weekends and some nights but overall it's constrained to the dorms. There isn't much drug use mainly just marijuana.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are available if you want them, but few people actually use them.

Drug Safety: It seems a lot worse than it is, but that's mainly because the handfuls of people that do drugs are generally pretty vocal about it. They're accessible if you want to experiment, but there's no pressure.

There isn’t a lot of drug activity happening at Mudd, aside from some pot smoking. Those who want to try drugs can find them pretty easily, but there is no pressure at all to use drugs, even if you hang out with people who do use them. Linde and West, and sometimes North Hall, are the most prevalent drug scenes, with people occasionally smoking from a bong outside on the Linde couches. South Hall is completely substance free, and East, Case, and Atwood Halls are not known for much drug activity at all.

As is the case for most of Mudd, the prevailing rule here is “be safe.” People who do use drugs do them in the company of friends, so that there’s less chance of getting hurt or doing something stupid. There isn’t a lot of drug usage at Mudd, although some students take caffeine or Adderall to help them study. If you go looking for drugs, they’re easy to find, but you can go through Mudd without even noticing them if that’s what you want. When doing drugs, the Honor Code still applies to all students. Students are expected to file a self-report if they do anything stupid. Campus Security will, for the most part, leave students alone, unless they get too rowdy or cause trouble.
