Most schools have this issue so I'm basically desensitized to drug and alcohol use. It is so common to smell weed wherever you go that it's basically become part of the campus culture. Alcohol (from what I've seen) is stashed in some students' (including underage) fridges or in some other hiding place. I personally have been pressured to drink and eventually gave in many times because I didn't want to be bothered by the people I was socializing with. The alcohol/drug policy is the same as the law - no one under 21 is allowed to drink and drugs are prohibited. But at this point, campus security really doesn't care. They'll only give you a warning if they receive a call from a student. That's it.
If you want to study, good luck because there is a party every night here. I often see the cleaning staff in the residential bathrooms, but they don't do anything with the gym or academic buildings. I wouldn't be surprised if the staff told me they hadn't been cleaned in three years. The social atmosphere is good for smokers. As soon as you walk into my dorm, you are greeted by the smell of marijuana. If you're into that and drinking, campus housing is good for you. We haven't had many parties, considering the last time we did, there was a massive fight, a girl got punched in the face, and the police came. It takes me a good 10 minutes to get to my classes. The cost of the rooms are definitely not reflective in the amenities. Everything is quite bad.
When I first arrived at Pine Manor I was excited and affraid. I was excited because I always wanted to live on the east coast, but I was affraid becasue of the school itself. I orginally did not like how small the campus was. Coming into my second semester of my sophomore year, I really love Pine Manor. There are so many opportunites provided by the school. My classes are great and my professors are so helpful. Honestly, if I could chose this school over I would, becasue you should always make the best out of any school, job, or opptuninity provided for you and thats exactly what I did.
