3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Its there if you go looking, i just don't look for that, not my thing

College Freshman

Drug Safety: No comment, don't spend extra time after hours at school. There are some students on rare occasion that I could see were tending a hangover and alcohol still lingering in their breath. Regarding drug policy, I haven't seen any notice or the policy brought to attention although I'm certain they exist.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: i'm not into drug or alcohol and it is not pressured to do so.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug safety is dependent on two factors: the responsibility of the students and the awareness of the public safety officers

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Personally, I don't notice much drug use or drinking on campus. Students are not allowed to smoke within 25 feet of any dorm. Drinking is not allowed in the presence of anyone under 21.

There is no pressure to drink or do drugs on the NJIT campus—though people will on occasion engage in the use of such things. The most notable use of alcohol occurs at the fraternities and sororities, but even at such parties, students do not experience pressure to drink. The most serious drug on campus is marijuana; anything more serious is a rarity. Alcohol is a part of campus life, but it is not a significant one. Alcohol use among students most often takes place after a major test. Underage students caught with alcohol are given a severe disciplinary hearing or are expelled, depending on the degree of the situation. Drug use has a similar penalty.

The school is very serious about drugs and alcohol. Even the possession of drug paraphernalia can result in disciplinary action. However, such objects do not carry the weight of being caught with drugs. Students caught with hookahs or bongs—but no drugs—will have the item or items confiscated and be subject to a mark on their record. When it comes to drug and alcohol policy violations, the most significant penalty tends to result in the loss of scholarships and any on-campus employment or research. All of these are considered invaluable to NJIT students, so those with jobs, internships, research positions, and scholarships are less inclined to participate in drinking or drugs.
