3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug and alcohol usage at JWU is pretty average compared to other colleges. It is a dry campus do there is no drinking on campus at all.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most of the bars and clubs offer underage drinking. The cops will raid the bar/club but won't make any arrests or changes. The safety guards are usually never around and when they are they have been seen smoking pot out in the open with the students right outside of mcnulty. I have seen many females alone and crying half naked. A few have been in hysterics crying because they had a bad trip. There have been many fights because of drug deals gone wrong. It is a very nasty scene here at Johnson and Wales Providence campus. Very bad and dangerous scene to be apart of.
