Drug Safety

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I didn't drink for my first term at Dartmouth because I never felt the pressure to. No one treats you differently just because you prefer water or keystone lite.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: The COLLEGE is great about this. Dangerous drinking is limited, especially with recent policies. Hanover Police (H-Po) over-zealously enforces alcohol policies though.

Drug Safety: Too much of every social event revolves around alcohol! Would like to see it stop.

Drug Safety: Alcohol monitoring/safety is very poor. There are systems in place for overdrinking, but there are no consequence-free methods of keeping students safe, so many cases go unreported of unsafe alcohol or drug use.

Drug Safety: lots of drinking and partying on weekends
"blackouts" are common and spoken about as badges of honor
campus policy is more lenient towards alcohol

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The average Dartmouth student will probably encounter a fair share of marijuana during his or her time at the College. It is definitely something that must be sought out—it won’t come to you, but if you’re of a mind to smoke, Dartmouth is as good a place as any.

Ecstasy and mushrooms are available on campus but are a little difficult to come by. Likewise, cocaine and painkiller use exists but is not prevalent. One of the more disturbing trends, which is certainly not unique to Dartmouth, involves students using prescription stimulants—mainly Adderall—as study aids in the library in an attempt to make up for time lost to partying.
