Drug Safety

Drug Safety: Though a lot of Centre kids drink--don't let administration lie to you--and most of the frat houses smoke, it's not like we're going all Scarface on campus with our heads piled in coke. There is a policy of amnesty if you see someone get wayyyy too intoxicated to the point of endangering their welfare and you get medical help, neither of you will get in any trouble.

There is a zero-tolerance drug policy and they've brought out dogs before to search. Be careful. You get kicked out for good, even if it's just weed (which clearly should be legalized, thought I'd say it).

Drug Safety: There is a lot of alcohol consumption on campus. I don't drink and find it very difficult to be engaged in weekend activities.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Some students drink, some do not. I haven't heard of anyone using hard drugs on campus.

Drug Safety: Nobody really does drugs at all, if they do then I don't notice it. The only thing most people do is alcohol.

Drug Safety: There aren't very many drugs at Centre College. A lot of people go out on the weekends but there are still a bunch who stay in there dorms or do other activities available on campus. Some people smoke and drink, but it is based on the group of people that you surround yourself with.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Hard drugs at Centre are virtually unheard of, and for good reason. If the College catches students with drugs (even pot), or paraphernalia, they are automatically expelled, period. There is an absolute zero-tolerance drug policy. Even if the Danville police or your hometown police arrest you for drugs, and Centre just hears about it, that's it, you're out. That said, there are still students who risk it, and there are even kids who smoke pot in their dorm rooms. Most students who do partake in drugs tend to be quiet about their actions, and most students just don't do illegal drugs. The most prevalent drug on campus is alcohol, and it is often drank by underagers.

The administration takes a looser approach to drunkenness, and the worst that can happen is your compulsory attendance to an alcohol awareness class and a fine. DPS tends to look the other way, except for individuals who are routinely breaking the rules or for individuals who are very intoxicated. Caffeine is abused around finals and midterms, along with Ritalin/Adderall. Ritalin/Adderall is one of the most abused drugs on college campuses, but actually finding anyone at Centre that has the drugs, without a prescription, is rare. Coke is long rumored to be at Centre, but in actuality, it's just gossip created to provide a jet-set backdrop. Centre students as a whole tend to look down on illegal drug use, and parties tend to be centered around booze, not drugs.
