Alcohol and Drugs

"We Agree" Campaign

The "We Agree" Campaign is a collaborative effort between Wayne State College and Northeast Community College to reduce disruptive parties and high-risk drinking.

Community standards and consequences

In order to ensure a high quality of life for all its residents, the Norfolk and Wayne Police Departments actively enforce the municipal codes. Those hosting social events in neighborhoods are expected to control the behavior of their guests or face stiff penalties.

Because you are a college student renting off-campus housing, many people assume that most students are drinking alcohol. In a recent surveys conducted by Northeast Community College and WSC, it was found that over 27 percent of students at both colleges had not consumed alcohol in the past 30 days. That means that you can find peers in college who do not drink alcohol.

As a college student, your behavior directly affects how the community views all college students, Northeast Community College and Wayne State College. The colleges have a strong working relationship with the Police Departments. As a result, the police may notify college officials when they issue citations regarding loud, disorderly parties in Norfolk and Wayne neighborhoods.
