Culver-Stockton College Policy
The possession, use, sale, and distribution of alcohol and illicit drugs on the C-SC campus are prohibited. More detailed statements of alcohol/other drug policies are available in the Faculty, Staff, and Student Handbooks. Violations of college policies regarding alcohol/other drugs may lead to sanctions, up to and including, expulsion from the college (for students) or termination of employment (for employees). Where laws are violated, legal sanctions may be incurred.
Health risks of alcohol and other drug abuse include death; impaired judgment and coordination; impaired learning and memory; dependency; physical disease; and, for mothers who drink alcohol during pregnancy, infants with fetal alcohol syndrome. Students and employees desiring alcohol/other drug counseling are encouraged to consult the list of resources in this brochure.
Legal Sanctions Associated with the Unlawful Possession or Distribution of Illicit Drugs and Alcohol
Narcotics and Other Dangerous Drugs
No legal jurisdiction allows the unrestricted use, possession, sale or manufacture of narcotics, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, cannabis or other scheduled drugs. Penalties range from loss of motor vehicle driving privileges and small fines for misdemeanors to long-term imprisonment and heavy economic sanctions for felonies (more information is available from the dean of student development). In addition, the conviction record of an individual is usually available for the public domain, including employers, prospective employers and insurance companies.

- Videos (e.g., binge drinking)
