Drug Safety: I am a returning student and not underage, so I am probably not the best resource, but the college has many non-traditional students and I have not observed a rowdy environment.

Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: As a commuter, I do not see drugs or alcohol used. I attend classes and leave campus when they are finished. I do not have much social time on campus.

Students that take drugs or have a drug history know better not to partake in anything on campus, or at least not to make it widely known. RAs and Public Safety officers have a zero-tolerance policy on drugs, and students can risk their entire Webster experience if they are caught. Some RAs are stricter than others, but most take their job seriously.

In terms of drug use, there are some individuals that use marijuana, if nothing else. There might be a select few that use "stronger stuff" like cocaine. However, these "stronger" drugs are kept under quiet terms. These individuals, however, do not show any kind of pressure toward others, nor has the "college culture" pressured much of anybody to do anything they do not consider doing. Peer pressure is usually kept at a minimum among the students, with there being a certain amount of respect for other people's limits. Many do enjoy campus life without the need of drugs or alcoholic drinks being present at any campus event. Most drinking happens either at off-campus residencies or at other neighboring schools, where most of the parties are held.
