The Wheaton drug scene is very underground and hidden. Most students will never even see a can of beer, much less an illegal substance, while attending Wheaton. In fact, to most of the student body, it seems ludicrous to have a drink or do any drugs while at school. Before you come to Wheaton, you have to sign the Community Covenant, giving your word in a pledge of integrity that, among other things, you will not drink alcohol or abuse any kind of substance while in school. The students who drink and do drugs completely disregard this code, and, for this reason, they keep their activities concealed from other students. The administration takes violations of the Covenant very seriously; anyone caught drinking or using substances will be disciplined. Suffice to say, you really have to go out of your way to see any sort of drug scene.
People often view Christian schools as hypocritical, in that the institution claims a Christian way of life but few students and administrators actually abide by it. In this sense, Wheaton is an atypical Christian school. Here, a very high majority of the students and faculty uphold the school’s Christian values. Besides those who have one too many espressos during finals week, Wheaton students are very clean.
