Drug Safety: Alcohol (wine) is the most visible on campus but no one treats you differently if you don't drink.

Drug Safety: At some of the other schools in the consortium, alcohol and drug use are much more visible. Because we are so closely linked to them and so close to them in location, it becomes more noticeable than it would otherwise be. Definitely drinking, but peer pressure is very low.

Drug Safety: The health services and campus safety care more about safety than getting people in trouble. The party scene is really noticeable but there are other ways to spend the weekends.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There's no peer pressure to drink or do drugs. I hear some people do drugs, like anywhere else, but its not that visible, you'd probably have to find it. Many people do partake in drinking, but many also don't and you can go to parties sober and still have fun. Campus Security always wants people to be safe, so they handle any conflicts. People tend to be pretty safe.

Drug Safety: Everybody drinks and if you don't, there is nothing to do. Getting black out is very common, and recreational drugs are very visible. If you aren't interested in these things, Claremont is not the place for you.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is a sizable substance-using community on Scripps as well as on the other colleges, but abstinence is respected, and most social scenes and social groups have a mixture of extreme, occasional, and non users. Most students do not feel peer pressure to conform or fit in through drugs. Most users on campus are not considered "hardcore," and there are hardly ever any incidents of accidents or health endangerment. The drug scene is open but also kept low amongst students. Along the same lines, while drugs are obviously existent on campus, they do not pose a threat, and everyone basically just minds their own business. Students who wish to engage in drugs find relatively easy access, and students who are not interested in drug use, or are against it, do not generally feel anxiety or discomfort because there is mutual respect amongst students in regards to personal lifestyle. Groups on campus are not exclusive and acceptance is widespread. Moreover, support groups and professional services are readily available to students.

The drinking style on campus is mainly the weekend binge, and marijuana is not hard to find in certain circles. Mushrooms are fairly prevalent on campus as well if you know the right places to look. Other hallucinogens are more scarce, but they're available.
