Drug Safety

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: We have a student group of first responders, as well as a wellness center, and security service, though many students (especially underage students) are hesitant to use these services for fear of getting into trouble with the school.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Alcohol and marijuana are pretty well accessible. I have experienced no peer pressure however even from members of the Greek community, I know members that don't take part in any kind of drug. There is also a club on campus that offers an alternative on the weekends called Common Grounds if partying is not your type of activity. Going out on the weekends can be fun even if you don't do drugs but there are also plenty of alternatives.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I've never had direct experiences with drugs on campus. Alcohol is a much bigger issue. There is a culture of heavy drinking on campus, but I do not participate in that scene and I've had a really healthy social life on campus due to various groups on campus. Two of the most common alternatives to drinking on campus are Common Grounds - a substance free performance area for live band, karaoke, board games, etc - and Wooster Activities Crew, which puts on many different evens throughout the year including movie showings, craft night, comedians, live band performances, and a variety of other activities.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drug use is not tolerated at The College. There is no visible drug scene, hence no peer pressure. In terms of alcohol, most students find trouble for underage drinking, open containers, or representation of themselves while under the influence.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: You hear about people doing drugs but local law enforcement and campus security really cracks down on it. Under age drinking is tolerated but their main concern is student safety.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Alcohol is widely used on campus. Students at Wooster enjoy drinking, but it's not an activity that everyone is involved in. There are plenty of on-campus and off-campus activities and events for students who don’t drink. However, it is hard to avoid the drinking scene at Wooster even if you choose to not be involved in it.

Treading below the surface of student activity at Wooster is drugs. Although the drug scene is pretty small, it does exist. Marijuana is prevalent on campus, and during midterms, finals, and the height of I.S. (independent study) crunch time, many students turn to Adderall or other “study drugs." But harder drugs are not big at Wooster. Unlike alcohol, the drug scene is easy to ignore if you choose to. So, while drugs can be found on campus, you'll only find them if you are looking for them.
