Curry can be a bit strict at times. Majority of students are not into the "drug scene" at Curry. But, you have a lot of typical stoners here who smoke a lot. There is also a good amount of drinking that goes one. Although, Curry is not what would be considered a party school there is drinking that goes on in the dorms. The "parties" can take place at the suites or off campus. Honestly, it is pretty quiet on the weekends. Most of the drinking occurs on "Thirsty Thursday" since a lot of people go home on the weekends. You'll also run into a few people who abuse Vyvanse or Adderall (ADHD meds). A few students use Molly occasionally, it's not super common though. Then you might hear about the few students who have tried Cocaine, Mushrooms, etc. Although, this is only a small percentage of the school! There are also a lot of students who do not drink or anything. In terms of safety, depending on the particular RA or public safety officer they could be very strict and write you up if they see any alcohol. Others are a little more relaxed.

Curry College's continuing education program is strong, informative and modern. I works with the working class that attend and allows the experience of college to be strong and informative. Juggling academics and every day life expectations are understood by the staff and the college administration, which allows the experience to be more enjoyable. Don't under estimate the curriculum and the pace of each semester. Determination is the key is succeeding and obtaining what one is trying to achieve. A degree!

Go Colonels! That's a lie. Our football team not only isn't great, but the school makes school spirit so non existent that no one cares about going to the games. I think more parents show up to the games than students. The hockey team has more students go to their games than the football games, and the hockey games are in this awful rink off campus. Sports overall here have no school support and the students sense that and therefore don't want to go to any of the games.
