Drug Safety

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I feel that there are students there that could have a supply of drugs, but I don't think drugs are a huge deal at all on this campus, in fact, it's a very clean campus.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Hardly anyone does drugs on campus. Drinking (and usually of age) is the most drug use NWC sees.

Drug Safety: Northwestern is a Christian college, so the use of drugs and alcohol is prohibited. Just like at any other college, drugs and alcohol will be available to students if they chose to seek it out. RA's and RD's closely monitor these activities, and discipline will follow every student who is found breaking the rules. Students receive 3 strikes before they are asked to leave Northwestern.

Drug Safety: This is Orange City, Iowa. Not only is this a Christian school, the whole town is Christian. Most people here aren't even familiar with the various types of drugs. The closest thing I've seen to drug use is two people smoking tobacco out of pipes like they were still in the 1800's. Yeah a FEW people drink on the weekends. But that's it. The cops will irritate you by driving up and down the same street all night because they have nothing else to do.

Drug Safety: Practically Non-Existent – Northwestern College has a strict policy on drug usage. There is only one park in the whole city where it is legal to smoke. Northwestern is a Christian college so drug usage isn't that big of a factor. If you are caught using illegal drugs, you will get suspended.
