4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Lots of fun to be had :)

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: people smoke weed, but it's a college in Oregon, so it's nothing special. about 300 students regularly drink on weekends, a large portion of them also smoke weed socially and sporadically.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The visible drug scene at Linfield is pretty limited to just marijuana. But really it depends on who you choose your friends to be. Drinking alcohol is much more prevalent

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't heard that people use drugs at Linfield noticably.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is less of a smoking than there is drinking, but there are still a handful of students who smoke marijuana. A lot of people prefer drinking during the weekend and holidays.

Drugs are not a widespread problem at Linfield. Students agree that the prevailing substance is alcohol at parties and occasionally weed; however, drugs are neither an issue nor a big part of the College population. Overall, drug use depends on the group of friends a person hangs out with. Students can have a great social life without drugs or alcohol, but if students are looking for drugs, they can definitely find them.

Heavy drug use is almost nonexistent at Linfield, other than alcohol at parties or the occasional student that uses or tries marijuana for the first time. Most students are involved with their academic, athletic, and busy lives with internships, practice, research, work, and study abroad programs, so there really isn't much time for drugs. Drug violations are regarded in conjunction with alcohol violations for students, and a three-strike policy is used. Both alcohol- and drug-related incidents are counted towards the three violations, which can get a student removed from the College.
