Drug Safety: Not really sure about drug scene don't use them but know they are available. Personally I don't feel much pressure just make your own decisions and stick to it. For policy's you are allowed alcohol on campus/in dorms if you are 21 or older if not, no alcohol, pretty straight forward policy. There is an amnesty policy that if someone is sick from alcohol or drug use you can call and get them help without you or that person getting arrested, I think you can only use amnesty once or twice and you still have a judicial review or whatever at the school but it doesn't go on your criminal record.

Drug Safety: There isn't peer pressure, but there are opportunities to drink and do drugs if you are open to it.

Drug Safety: Pretty much everyone drinks and smokes, but nobody is going to hold it against you if you dont.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you aren't feeling well or someone else isn't feeling well, you can call campus safety and they will not write your name up at all. They really do value student saftey

Drug Safety: There is a group of friends for everyone here. If you are into doing drugs (i.e. smoke weed, drink, X, acid, etc.) then you will find them. However if you are someone that is not interested in doing drugs then you will be fine as well, since there are many people like that here as well.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There’s no doubt that IC students partake in the use of illegal substances. There are even times when students go to class high or smoke pot in public places. This is not to say that all students are potheads or even close to it; if students don’t want to have any run-ins with drugs, it is totally possible to do so. If students want to find some place to get high or enjoy baked goods on a regular basis, that can happen, as well. IC is not a dry campus, meaning that students are permitted to have alcohol on campus if they are 21-and-up. The under-21 crowd does its fair share of drinking, too, but once again, if you don’t want to, you don’t have to touch a drop. Mainly, it’s up to the individual to decide what kind of lifestyle he or she wants to lead.

Although a number of students use illegal substances or drink before they turn 21, the scene isn’t so prevalent that it makes other students uncomfortable if they want to be drug-free. Many students start trying out drugs when they get to Ithaca College, and others remain drug-free. Health Center’s drug counseling program is available to help students if they need it, and Public Safety officers work to control any substance problems that arise on campus. It's also worth noting that while drug use and alcohol consumption are fairly consistent throughout the year, during the beginning and end of the semester, there is an increase in student usage.
