There is substance free housing both for first years and upperclassmen--it's called Wellness Housing. A few of my good friends live in Wellness this year, and they have a great time and plan a bunch of events. My roommate doesn't drink at all, and I rarely do, and we both are happy and have fun, even not living in Wellness.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.

Kenyon is a wet campus, and the president of the College, along with 100 other college presidents, is a supporter of the "Amethyst Initiative," which encourages informed debate on the current alcohol policies and invites new ideas. This all means that drinking on campus is largely unregulated. Large parties are required to have "party monitors" who check IDs at the door, but this does little, other than mark underage drinkers before handing them a beer. Other areas on campus, such as freshman dorms, have stricter standards. Freshmen caught drinking in their halls will be written up by their community adviser. Far from being a strict punishment, this write-up often amounts to nothing more than a piece of paper with no further implications.
The only complication with Kenyon security is that the Knox County Sheriff exploits the lack of real distinction between Kenyon and Gambier. Students who wander, intoxicated, onto Gambier property are likely to be heftily fined and may face harsher consequences. In terms of off-campus visitors, the standards are even more lax. The official policy requires students to register their guest with the Office of Campus Safety upon arrival and states that guests can stay no more than three days in one calendar month. In general, these rules are not enforced, and as long as the guests do not cause any problems, Campus Safety does not care about them.
