5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol use is prohibited in the Life Together Covenant that all students sign each year. Therefore, if there is drug use or drinking on campus, it is invisible. The LTC is strictly enforced, and students caught doing drugs or drinking are put on probation or suspended.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: We all signed a meaningful contract saying that we won't do that kind of stuff. I have yet to even hear about anyone violating it (I mean, I'm sure it happens, but not enough that people talk about it).

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Seriously, no one drinks or do. If they do, they don't tell anyone or else they will get kicked out.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Taylor prohibits any use of drugs, so the existence of drugs, which is very minimal is also not spoken of or advertised very much at all.

Drug Safety: While alcohol and drugs are present on this campus, if you want to avoid them it is rather easy to do so.

As a general rule, Taylor is an entirely drug- and alcohol-free campus. It's not coincidental; Taylor, understanding the potential harm that mind-altering substances (and addictions to them) cause, forbids the entire practice outright in the Life Together Covenant (LTC), which every student signs at the beginning of each year. Even students old enough to drink legally are not permitted to do so. Consequently, there are no "favorite" drugs on campus, no unique campus drinking games, and no students particularly known for how they can't handle their liquor. Some students regard the LTC's strictures as unfair, particularly those who are old enough to drink. Taylor, in response, points to its faculty, all of whom are old enough to drink alcohol and have signed the LTC and refuse to drink. The premise that the best way to evade an addiction to alcohol is to never drink it forms the basis for Taylor's policy. 

Drugs and alcohol aren't the only addictive substances Taylor takes a stance against, however. The LTC also forbids smoking, pornography, premarital sex, and any other substances or practices which could cause their students harm. These rules are not arbitrary; they are derived directly from Biblical laws with the aim to protect students from harmful things.

Did You Know?
  • Drug abuse certainly happens on the Taylor campus, as it does anywhere else. However, most students are unaware of any drug use, which demonstrates that discouragement toward drug use is effective on campus, or at least that students have strong convictions against drug abuse.
  • Students are required to read and sign the LTC upon attending Taylor.
