Drugs and alcohol are not a noticeable part of campus life, and very few students actually do partake. If students do choose to take part, then they will go off campus to use them because drug and alcohol use is prohibited at all times on campus. Therefore, drugs and alcohol are not very visible on campus, and you cannot pinpoint people who actually do use them. There is no pressure to drink or use drugs, and the majority of students has no interest in them whatsoever. They would rather make the right decisions and tend to schoolwork instead of getting drunk or high. The kinds of penalties that are in place for students who are caught using drugs or alcohol depend on by whom the students get caught.
Drugs and underage drinking are illegal, so if the police are involved, then the student could face serious consequences for his or her actions. If the school catches a student who has been underage drinking or using drugs, then the College may issue a warning to the student and call his or her parents, but the penalty can go as far as getting kicked off campus or being kicked out of Sage. The school takes these violations very seriously, and students are not permitted to do drugs or to underage drink, whether on or off campus. When students get caught doing drugs or drinking illegally, it can impact the College’s reputation, so it is potentially the second highest violation on the school's list next to plagiarism.
