Excessive drug and alcohol use can negatively impact your ability to be a successful student.  Use of these substances are also prohibited on campus according to the Code of Student Conduct (WAC 132N-125-035)

Drug and alcohol use can also lead to both short- and long-term health problems, including, but not limited to neurological effects, liver and kidney failure, and contraction of a disease such as HIV or Hepatitis.  Drug and alcohol use is especially dangerous for pregnant people, as it can result in birth defects.  The NIH National Institute on Drug Abuse has more information about the effects of alcohol and drug abuse on their website.
