Alcohol, Drugs, and Firearms

Alcohol and Drug Use Policy

Students and employees of Southern Wesleyan University are expected to refrain from possession, use or distribution of alcohol, illegal drugs or tobacco unless prescribed by a licensed physician. The university supports state laws with respect to alcohol and drug violations and reserves the right to report all violations of such to local authorities. This standard is expected regardless of age of the employee or student. This expectation is clearly stated in both the handbook for employees and the handbook for students and implies total abstinence as an indication of one's responsibility to God, to others, to self and to the university. For more information, refer to one of the above mentioned handbooks.


No fireworks or firearms are to be in possession or discharged on campus property at any time. Weapons are not permitted in the residence halls.
