Illegal Substances and Alcohol
Alcohol and Displays – Substance and Alcohol
Public intoxication, use, or possession of alcoholic beverages on University property, including in the lodges, is prohibited regardless of age. Unused alcohol will be disposed of by the student under the supervision of staff or University Police. Severe violations, such as a keg or an unusually large amount of alcohol, may result in dismissal from the lodges. Displays of empty alcohol, wine, liquor, shot glasses, or beer containers, including boxes, are not allowed. These displays glorify alcohol use and misuse and do not contribute to the intellectual and educational mission of the institution. Such displays also pose a potential health problem.
Drugs and Illegal Substances – Substances and Alcohol
Use, distribution, or otherwise possession of illegal drugs (such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, ecstasy, vaping, etc.), improper use of prescription medications or use of non-prescribed medications, or drug paraphernalia are prohibited in or around University housing facilities or by residential students. The misuse or abuse of legally procured products or substances for mind-altering purposes is also prohibited. In addition to charges under the student disciplinary process, students may be dismissed from housing.
State and federal laws prohibit the possession of and/or use of illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia. Students cited by law enforcement officials may be subject to criminal prosecution, fine, and/or imprisonment.
