CMC drug/party scene

Sadly a CMC boy recently died apparently from doing whip-its. How prevalent is the drug scene at the 5c's and are the college's similar in usage?

    First, let me start off by saying that I found your introduction sentence to be quite flippant. He was not some 'CMC boy', but a beloved and cherished member of our family. At a school this small, I doubt you would find anyone at CMC who did not in some way interact with the man in question at least one point in their lives.

    That being said, the drug culture here is no more or less prevalent than one would find at any elite institution. This is not to say that it is in any way justified, just that we are most likely on par with the sort of drug usage that you might find at schools like Dartmouth, Middlebury, etc.

    My apologies if my remark appeared flippant. That was not at all my intent. It is a very serious issue and very upsetting.
