Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Mary Washington prides itself in being a drug-free zone, and its strict policies enforce that. The school takes drugs very seriously, and there are serious consequences from campus police if you are caught smoking a puff or are even suspected of being high. Although the school just removed its one-strike policy in the fall of 2011, students know it's still very risky to smoke on campus. Anyone who is looking to smoke weed tends to do it in more private settings to avoid any trouble. Heavier drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy, aren’t entirely unheard of, but they are on the "down-low" and aren’t as popular on campus.

In short, the most serious it gets when it comes to drugs at the University is popping an unprescribed Adderall pill to study for an exam or smoking weed. Drinking is more tolerated, even in the dorms, and goes by unnoticed, unless the noise is very noticeable. There is little to no peer pressure to smoke or drink at the University. Drinking and drugs are more of an option at Mary Washington rather than a mandatory way to fit in, and no one tends to look down on you if you choose not to engage in these things.
