Drugs are not a widespread problem at Linfield. Students agree that the prevailing substance is alcohol at parties and occasionally weed; however, drugs are neither an issue nor a big part of the College population. Overall, drug use depends on the group of friends a person hangs out with. Students can have a great social life without drugs or alcohol, but if students are looking for drugs, they can definitely find them.
Heavy drug use is almost nonexistent at Linfield, other than alcohol at parties or the occasional student that uses or tries marijuana for the first time. Most students are involved with their academic, athletic, and busy lives with internships, practice, research, work, and study abroad programs, so there really isn't much time for drugs. Drug violations are regarded in conjunction with alcohol violations for students, and a three-strike policy is used. Both alcohol- and drug-related incidents are counted towards the three violations, which can get a student removed from the College.
