Alcohol, Drugs, and Addiction

Lake Superior College is part of the Tri-Campus Community Coalition on Student Drinking (T3C) of which we seek to address irresponsible and dangerous use of alcohol by students of three Duluth Minnesota higher education institutions (Lake Superior College, The College of St. Scholastica and the University of Minnesota Duluth). Heavy use of alcohol by students impacts the quality of drinkers’ lives (lower grades, sleep disruption, injury). It disrupts roommates and fellow students. It leads to security concerns and property damage on campuses. It extends into communities adjacent to campuses where noise and inappropriate behavior by drunken students negatively effect the quality of life of non student residents.
