Drug Safety: Th campus safety officers are good at their job

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: As far as I can see, there's little to no drug scene at Wofford College. I've seen a few people smoke but that's about it. Students partake in drinking more than anything though and that's on occasion.

Drug Safety: Although alcohol is present at school, I don't believe there is an issue. I'm highly impressed by our amnesty policy, and how Campus Saftey deals with alcohol on campus.

Drug Safety: Peer pressure doesn't seem to be an issue. The drug scene is not huge. Although, you will run into it from time to time--but students aren't very open about it. Wofford's social scene revolves around Greek Life and the Fraternity Row which is located on campus and open to all students, and where you can find a majority of the students on the weekends. "The Row" is on campus and is Wofford's way of giving students an alternative to driving on the weekends and encourages students to remain on campus (trying to keep everyone safe). It is a lot of fun, hence the reason everyone goes there on the weekends (there are always bands and fun stuff going on)! Wofford is considered a "wet campus," which means if you are over the age of 21, you are allowed to have alcohol pretty much anywhere (except the freshmen dorms). So, alcohol is definitely more visible and there is an alcohol policy that is enforced if you are caught under the age of 21 with alcohol--although campus safety is aware that people make mistakes and are good about not being too harsh with punishment.
