Campus strictness is tied with safety, and safety is a priority at Linfield College. Drugs are not prevalent at Linfield, and it is not a primary part of life for students. Most students participate in alcohol at parties, but seldom will students even hear about someone using marijuana or hard drugs. Some students feel that the campus is fairly strict on underage drinking, while other students believe campus policy is pretty reasonable and practical.
Campus police generally don't interfere with parties unless the get-togethers get out of hand or alcohol is blatantly noticeable. Also, drug use is not a widespread problem; Linfield has a much lower usage rate than other campuses. The prevailing substances are alcohol at parties or beer when students go off campus to wind down. Usually, campus police will ticket offenses for traffic violations, and overall look out for a student's well-being.
