Alcohol and Other Drugs

As an educational institution, the college recognizes that the use of alcohol is a matter of individual choice and does not, therefore, encourage or discourage the reasonable legal use of alcoholic beverages. Oswego strives to empower students to make positive choices that reflect attitudes and behaviors that result in healthy lifestyles and contribute to a positive campus learning environment. New students, in particular, are likely to encounter choices to be made regarding peer expectations to drink alcohol and use drugs in social situations.
