Although you’ll encounter hazy-eyed students staggering from Andrews Court every weekend, it’s unusual to see the drugs they used—most kids retreat into small, private gatherings to get wasted. Marijuana and coke are big, and at most house parties, the liquor runs dry before you even arrive. During Conference Week, stimulants such as Ritalin and Adderall are popular with students who pull all-nighters. Fortunately, students who aren’t into the drug scene aren’t typically pressured or harassed by those who are.
In reflecting on the drug scene, students seem disturbed by the reckless behavior of their peers. Drug abuse, although generally accepted, is not perceived as a “cool” thing by the campus. So why is there a problem? The dismal social scene, the anti-social demeanor of many students, and the insular campus atmosphere are popular scapegoats for SLC’s drug predicament. And despite the College’s numerous movements to educate students on safe partying habits, more and more kids get hospitalized for substance abuse every year. SLC is a close-knit community, and episodes of alcohol poisoning or drug overdoses send shockwaves all over campus.
