Sadly, there is a drug scene at Manhattan College. However, unlike a lot of colleges, it's not a major problem, as only a small number of students get involved in drugs. The most common drug is marijuana. People will try other drugs, ranging from cocaine to LSD to even mushrooms, but marijuana is the drug of choice. 

The majority of campus does not even get involved with drugs, but that doesn't necessarily mean they haven’t tried it. Most of the campus drinks and smokes cigarettes. Other than that, you really have to look carefully or make friends with the wrong people to find any sort of drug problems at Manhattan College. This isn’t a college that gets involved in that sort of stuff, and there are a lot of responsible students.
