Drug Safety: College of the Atlantic's drug scene is not in your face and its also not non-existent. There are options to live in substance free housing on campus, which means no drugs or alcohol are allowed in the dorm. Then there are substance allowed housing where students over 21 are allowed to have alcohol in their rooms, but not common areas. There are parties and kids drink, smoke and do drugs, but there is no pressure to do any of these things. There is no judgement if you choose not to participate, but if you want to you can and no one will judge you for that either. Drinking and smoking are the most common and drinking is the most social of all drug activities. There is also VERY few instances of hard drug usage.

Drug Safety: It Happens – COA has a pretty prevalent drug and alcohol scene. You can often go down to the dock and find people drinking or smoking, and you're guaranteed to find someone smoking in the bike shed. It's often overlooked by the administrations/authorities, until it becomes out of control or an issue.
