Drug Safety: I don't know much about this either however, on campus I've never heard of the usage of drug or alcohol anywhere. I've never heard of students talking about what they are planning to do after class. This topic is simply never mentioned.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Because Hunter does not really have a campus, there are few places for a “drug scene” to exist, and whatever students do outside of the classroom is their own business. The College became a "dry campus" in 2009, which means that there are no more student government parties with alcohol, although clubs may still apply to host events with alcohol on campus.

Drug use does occur in the dorms, despite prohibition. However, there is no pressure to engage in it. For a student who has no particular wish to engage in drug use, he/she can avoid coming in contact with it, although one might occasionally smell suspicious odors wafting on certain floors. However, security around the main campus and dorms ensures that this risky behavior will probably be addressed if one is caught.
