Drug Safety: Clarkies are pretty laid back. There's a lot of drug and alcohol use but a lot of people hang out with others who are using and no one cares if they choose not to partake.

Drug Safety: Like in any other college campus people use marijuana and drink alcohol. The university police will stop you if they see you so many people try not to be very blatant about it. If you do not want to drink or use drugs many people will understand and respect that decision.

Drug Safety: Drug culture on campus is very prevalent, but I've never encountered a situation where anything is abused. Also, there is never really any pressure to do anything you're not comfortable with. There are plenty other things on campus to do to occupy your time.

Drug Safety: I do not actually really see people drinking. Very few people smoke but they hide to do it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Not only is drug use not a large problem among Clark students, most of the drugs seem hard to find. Legal drugs like alcohol, caffeine, and some prescription drugs can be found all around campus at any time of the year. However, abuse of these particular substances seems to be extremely rare, at least to the point that no one ever hears about someone having problems. Marijuana is the main illegal drug that one might encounter, but the chances of being pressured by another Clarkie into trying it are slim to none. It is entirely possible for a Clarkie to get through their entire four years at the University without trying any substances, or even being around them for more than a few minutes. Like every other part of life at Clark, the attitude on drugs is, “If it’s your scene, then fine, but if not, I don’t care.” This is one example where Clarkie apathy plays a positive role.

For those who require assistance with possible substance abuse problems, Clark’s Wellness Outreach Coordinator provides risk assessment, counseling, and education in order to help prevent the stresses of college life from developing into unhealthy, destructive behaviors.

Clark students are big on hookahs, and there are even hookah bars nearby. So, come summer and even fall, there will be students out on the Green smoking hookah because it's legal in Massachusetts.
