Drug Safety: I don't really partake, so I can't say, but I know a lot of people drink and smoke

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's a liberal arts college, so honestly if you didn't expect there to be heavy usage of pot, you were only fooling yourself. The administration acts like they'll do oh so much about drug and alcohol (underage) use, but almost every person on campus is smoking, drinking, getting Adderall, or a mixture of the three with hardly anyone ever being busted. When they do try to enforce the policy, they hilariously end up going after the students that don't partake in drugs or underage drinking.

Drug Safety: There are always going to be some students that partake in drug use. It is not very obvious unless you are looking for it. Most students use alcohol, but it is used responsibly.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol abuse is zero tolerance here. There were a couple of bust in the freshman dorm in the beginning of the school year and afterwards we haven't heard of any more. They make it very apparent in orientation that we have zero tolerance for underage drinking and drug use. They kick students out for drug usage. We are actually becoming a transition school concerning tobacco use but until this year we were a smoke free campus and we may go back to that. Any time there is alcohol abuse by anyone they take the necessary precautions and if it is underage they will take students to judicial board and usually there is community service involved for the first account. When upperclassmen are found to be giving alcohol to students they are also taking to judicial board and usually receive severe repercussions (suspension). At Greek parties, the coordinator is always walking around making sure no one underage is drinking and if they are they are escorted to their dorm unless there are signs of alcohol poisoning.

Drug Safety: Campus safety doesn't really poke around in the students' business unless you're really obvious or dangerous. Not to say you won't get in trouble if you're found with drugs, but if you're 21 you're allowed to have alcohol since we're a "wet campus." The parties generally have alcohol (though it might be hard to get at times) and campus safety rarely interferes. Our drug scene is pretty tame. Drinking is huge, marijuana is fairy big, though not extremely evident unless you look for it. Other drugs are present, but harder to find.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The drug scene on campus is a fairly controversial topic. While some people will tell you that drugs are nearly non-existent, others find them readily and frequently available. It really depends on where you are on campus and who you know. However, the general consensus is that marijuana can be easily found and that cigarettes are commonly used. There isn't much (if any) pressure to be involved in such activities, but even if you don't participate, you can still see a fair amount of light drug use.

Heavier drug use can be found at off-campus parties, but it is not a big issue, if an issue at all, on campus. There is a problem however with students using light drugs outside of the dorms, which some non-using students find annoying. On that note, it isn't out of the ordinary to see someone hungover, but it is odd to see them uncontrollably high. While pot use may bother some students who can smell it outside of their dorm rooms, and cigarettes are used by many students in front of the buildings where other students walk, most other drugs won't influence the "substance-free" students at all. Their biggest inconvenience will usually involve alcohol, meaning that they might have to take care of a drunken friend on the weekend or a roommate after parties.
