Drugs exist on the MHC campus, but in general, the drug scene is pretty tame. Yes, alcohol is ever-present (often hidden away in a secret stash in your room or your friend’s room), but as one student said, serious abuse of any drug, including alcohol, is rare. There are far more alcohol-related referrals than drug-related referrals, which tells you something right there—you won’t find many hardcore drugs on this campus. It’s also significant that there are many more referrals than arrests. Public Safety is not likely to arrest you for alcohol use—things just don’t get that wild, although you can still get caught for excessive drinking, and then you’ll probably get referred to a treatment program.
You can completely avoid the drug scene at Mount Holyoke if you want to because it’s not that pervasive. However, if you remain at the school for any length of time, you’ll probably encounter at least one person who regularly gets drunk or high. The trick is, if you are such a person, keep things carefully concealed because if you’re caught, you’ll get a bad reputation. Besides alcohol, caffeine is probably the most widely used drug—the favorite of students pulling all-nighters.
