Rochester College has a strict anti-drug policy. This includes tobacco and cigarettes. No smoking or drinking, even for those of age, is allowed on campus. Sanctions exist for students who are caught with any form of alcohol/drugs on their person, in their vehicle, or in their dorm room.
Rochester College wants to promote an atmosphere of Christian discipline and openly discourages any sort of drug-related socializing or activities. Students who take over-the-counter medications for whatever reason may be asked to disclose such product to a Rochester College faculty member if asked. Students who reside in residence halls may find their suites subject to search and seizure if parties are suspected of using or harboring illicit substances.
