2 - Drugs

Philosophy and Rationale

The use and possession of marijuana and/or other drugs may have disrupting consequences that interfere with the educational mission and general welfare of the College community. Because of the potential danger of these substances, the College prohibits use, possession, distribution, or sale of illegal drugs (including marijuana), un-prescribed drugs, or of any medication or substance used for purposes other than the manufacturer’s intended use. When the College is notified of student misconduct in regard to drug use or sale off campus, it may hold the student accountable through the campus disciplinary process.
