3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: everyone smoke weed it seems like here.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's a normal thing to do cocaine

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: People are going to drink and smoke, there is no question and you can't fight it. I do know people who use heavier drugs, but no one here is ridiculous about it. We have the occasional moron or two, but the police force is pretty good at keeping things on a calmer level. There is no peer pressure whatsoever. I shown up to parties without drinking or smoking before, during, and after and nobody cares. Usage that makes a presence is only really visible on weekends. Normally you see people walking from house to house. If the weather is nicer at night people sometimes get a little more excited.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There does not seem to be much problems with drug use and underage drinking, public safety seems to have everything under control.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Lots of people think there's a big drug scene because of the art school, but it's actually pretty mellow. The parties on main street get a little obvious, but other than that, uses are often restricted to private parties or the bars.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

One might think that a campus like Alfred would be driven to drug use simply for the lack of activities. On the contrary, Alfred students seem much more interested in innovating new and dangerous winter sports than getting high. Don't get it twisted—students are champion drinkers. Purchasing your own mug from Alex's is a rite of passage. Still, although alcohol and marijuana are big on the weekends, most students leave them there.

It would appear that the most prominent drug use occurs in the art school. Here, substances are welcomed by a certain crowd as creative stimulants. The rest of the population, however, seems to fare well enough without it. The great thing about Alfred is that there's very little peer pressure to get into, well, anything, drugs included.
