Radford University seeks to encourage and sustain an academic environment
that both respects individual freedom and promotes the health, safety and
welfare of all members of its community. In keeping with these objectives,
the university has established a policy and guidelines governing the
possession, sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages on the university
campus that conform to the laws of Virginia. Underage possession and /or
consumption of alcoholic beverages is not permitted on property owned or
controlled by the university. Intentionally or knowingly selling, or
intentionally or knowingly "furnishing" alcoholic beverages to persons under
the age of 21, or to persons obviously inebriated, is not permitted on
property owned or controlled by the university. Legal consumption and
possession of alcoholic beverages is limited to designated locations only.
The complete policy and guidelines concerning alcoholic beverages is
published annually in the university
The university does not condone the possession, use or distribution of
marijuana, LSD or other hallucinogens, narcotics or any other illegal drugs
by anyone in any campus facility. Any individual known to be possessing,
using, or distributing such drugs is subject to campus disciplinary action
and criminal arrest, imprisonment and/or fine according to state law.
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education Programs
Consistent with its educational mission, the university also assists its
members in finding alternatives to alcoholic beverages for promoting social
interaction and stress reduction, and it provides services and resources for
community members who experience alcohol-related difficulties. Keeping
informed is an important step in developing a healthy lifestyle and in
knowing how to cope with problems as they arise.
Radford University provides useful and informative prevention education
programs throughout the year.
A variety of departments sponsor workshops and lectures on alcohol and
drug-related issues to support and encourage healthy, productive lifestyles.

For students with substance abuse problems or concerns, assistance is
available at Student Counseling Services
or the Office of Alcohol and Other Drug Services
. The experienced
professional counselor offers support for students in an atmosphere of
understanding and confidentiality. The Counseling Services offers individual
assessment and referral to both on and off-campus resources.
If you are aware of problems with friends, roommates, or family members, we
encourage you to act responsibly by consulting with the Student Counseling Services. Remaining silent or waiting until a
situation has escalated is neither respectful nor responsible. The

solve alcohol and substance abuse problems as they occur.
