Drug scene? The most hardcore scenes you’ll find at CLU are underage drinking and the occasional joint. Though CLU is a strict, dry (no alcohol allowed) campus, alcohol is always available to those who venture off campus. Though many students drink, no one pressures you or treats you differently if you don’t. Students are respectful of your decision to drink or not, and many students have a great social life without alcohol. The next most popular drug after alcohol is marijuana. There are far less students who smoke weed than drink, and the scene is there but not as noticeable. Drugs of any kind are not permitted on campus, so most students smoke off campus. Prescription drugs, like Adderall and Ritalin, are not as common as marijuana and are normally taken by those pulling all-nighters during finals week. Like drinking, there’s no pressure in smoking or popping pills, if that’s not your choice.
CLU holds strict policies on alcohol and drugs. Alcohol, including empty alcoholic beverage containers, are not allowed on campus. Possession, use, or distribution of illegal drugs and/or narcotics are also prohibited. Students who get caught violating these policies are documented for a policy violation. Each subsequent violation entails a different penalty. In most cases, students usually get written up once or twice by their resident assistants for having alcohol in their dorm rooms.
