Converse College seeks to provide an atmosphere of social and legal responsibility with regard to alcohol consumption. All students and their guests must comply with South Carolina law and Converse policies concerning the purchase, consumption and possession of alcoholic beverages on campus.
The Department of Campus Safety will issue identification validation for those students who are 21 years of age. Students without special validation will not be permitted to drink alcoholic beverages on campus. No alcoholic beverages may be kept or consumed in the residence halls. The use, selling, bartering, exchanging and giving away of illegal drugs is prohibited by state law as well as campus policy.
Throughout the year, there are various Drug and Alcohol Education programs and activities. Converse participates in National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week in the fall and sponsors a Wellness Fair in the spring. Residence hall programs, campus-wide activities and resources for substance abuse counseling are coordinated through the Counseling Center. College employees also work within a responsible environment that is in compliance with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988.
Converse College is a Tobacco Free campus.
