Drug Safety: Do what you want at the end of the day, if you want to find stuff it's pretty easy to do so if you don't you can easily stay away and not ever come into contact with it.

Drug Safety: I am not very familiar with the drug policies on campus but I do see many students smoking everywhere all the time around campus

Drug Safety: Cops and housing are pretty strict about usage of illegal substances, but some underage drinking really isn't much of a problem (unless you get caught by your RA). Hard drugs aren't much of an issue on campus, but I'm sure you can find some since we're in Newark.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no pressure to drink or do drugs on the NJIT campus—though people will on occasion engage in the use of such things. The most notable use of alcohol occurs at the fraternities and sororities, but even at such parties, students do not experience pressure to drink. The most serious drug on campus is marijuana; anything more serious is a rarity. Alcohol is a part of campus life, but it is not a significant one. Alcohol use among students most often takes place after a major test. Underage students caught with alcohol are given a severe disciplinary hearing or are expelled, depending on the degree of the situation. Drug use has a similar penalty.

The school is very serious about drugs and alcohol. Even the possession of drug paraphernalia can result in disciplinary action. However, such objects do not carry the weight of being caught with drugs. Students caught with hookahs or bongs—but no drugs—will have the item or items confiscated and be subject to a mark on their record. When it comes to drug and alcohol policy violations, the most significant penalty tends to result in the loss of scholarships and any on-campus employment or research. All of these are considered invaluable to NJIT students, so those with jobs, internships, research positions, and scholarships are less inclined to participate in drinking or drugs.
