Drug Safety: There are not many instances in which a person or evidence of drugs or alcohol indulgence have been located. I think the students at Tech are smart enough to understand the pointlessness of being expelled for alcohol consumption on campus when the majority of them have friends who live off campus or the ability to go to a bar or any other location that allows drinking. To my knowledge, most situations involving alcohol involve fraternity or house parties which are not part of the main campus. The main problem I see lies in underage drinking. Many freshman college students feel the need to cut loose and going to a party allows them to do so, but then they get the idea to consume alcohol. This could either be from their own judgement and apathy, or they adopt the behavior from their peers that are already drinking. At the handful of party's I've been to at Tech, I have been offered alcohol but once I revealed my age the coercers back of understandingly. There have been times where police officers have raided parties and caught multiple charges of underage drinking and arrested multiple students. I have yet to personally realize any drinking violations on the main campus itself. I have noticed at least one drug bust on Tech Campus. One student was selling marijuana from one of the male dorms. He got the boot eventually, but I dont know any details.

Drug Safety: Policy is very accepting of alcohol.

Drug Safety: Alcohol consumption on campus is pretty noticeable and pretty difficult to escape, but there generally isn't a problem with drug or alcohol safety.
