Drug Safety


{{ error }}
4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Weed and alcohol are widely used. However, many students don't partake in it and can still have a great time. No one will pressure you to drink, but I think your college experience will be better if you do.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs are something not often discussed by faculty at John Carroll, kind of a turn a blind eye type thing.

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Nothing seedy. Kids who want access to drugs would find it, but there was never a significant amount of peer pressure there. It's a school full of people from affluent backgrounds, so there was plenty of drinking going on.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drug users are documented and punished. It is not accepted here, though it still happens of course.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't hear much about drugs. There's a lot of alcohol though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Drugs and alcohol are going to be present at almost any school you go to. At John Carroll, both are seen around campus, but, generally, it's more alcohol than drugs. For the most part, students feel as if there isn't an overwhelming amount of pressure to drink, do drugs, or smoke. Most students respect each others' decisions to refrain from these activities. There is, of course, some peer pressure, but a lot of it depends on being strong enough not to succumb to that pressure. For students who get caught drinking or doing drugs, John Carroll has consequences, including fines, probation, termination of the housing contract, limitations on activities or access, and even expulsion (just to name a few).

Some RAs on campus are strict about drinking, and some are not. For the most part, if you don't make it obvious (i.e., don't act dumb, or harm or annoy other people), you will most likely not get caught. A lot of students go off campus to drink, as well, and in that case, the University Heights Police Department is in charge of disciplinary action.
