3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Its not terrible because it isn't out in the open since this is a dry campus but you hear about it very frequently.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Also not an issue. If you are into that stuff you are able to find others who are doing the same stuff. If you are wanting to stay away from it you won't have a problem at all.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The prevalence of drug use on campus at Concordia is not very high. Some would argue that, because of the college’s strict enforcement of drug policies, they never even enter the grounds. This is a foolish interpretation because, as can be noted in student reviews, there are always students willing to brave the consequences of getting caught. With these references in mind, the most obvious drugs used on campus are either marijuana or prescription drugs. While they are the most accessible, their campus-wide influence is extremely low. The reason that drug use is so low on campus is because of the harsh penalties for being caught possessing illegal substances. Resident advisers are generally serious about maintaining campus policy and will sniff you out and slap you with a violation fee, which ultimately ends with academic probation or even expulsion.

Drugs simply do not exert much influence over the student body. However, the most common drug present on campus is alcohol, though its role is also minimal. Concordia is a dry campus—a campus that does not allow alcohol—with persistent RAs, but students will find ways to get alcohol and consume it on campus without regard to the firm rules. Whether they hide it in orange juice containers or put bottles above ceiling tiles, a very small minority of students clearly find alcoholic beverage experimentation a necessity in dealing with college life.
