SAFETY AND SECURITY
ALCOHOL AND DRUG POLICY
The College strictly prohibits:
- Consumption of alcohol on campus unless served at college sponsored or approved events, as approved by the President, (It is unlawful to sell, furnish or provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21).
- Use, manufacture or possession of illegal drugs or narcotics on campus or at College functions.
The use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol pose serious risks to one’s health. Orientation packets contain a list of possible side effects associated with the use and abuse of alcohol and certain other drugs. (Lists are also available from college counselors.) Almost all of these effects include the symptoms of dilated pupils, elevated body temperature, increased heart rate, and increased blood pressure, impairment of judgment and mental functions, and loss of control and coordination. If ingested by a pregnant woman or nursing mother, these drugs pose serious risks to the health of fetuses and nursing infants, up to and including death.
