To create and nurture students, faculty and staff in an environment that supports development of healthy lifestyles, promotes wise decisions about alcohol and other drug use, and prevents substance abuse at the personal, professional, campus and community levels.

Atmosphere of College Today

Students who plan to go to college will find that it brings lifetime memories and lasting bonds with peers. Throughout these college years, you will continue to mature socially and intellectually as you begin to plan out your professional and personal goals for the future. There are some important things for you to know about factors that could have an impact on you while you are here. It might surprise you to know that college drinking is at an all-time low, and abstinence is at an all-time high. But these issues remain a concern.

Mature and Responsible Choices (MARC) provides awareness to the impact of alcohol and other drug use on the lives of students on a college campus. Dealing with these issues and understanding the implications helps students evaluate and be concerned with other issues that may have just as big of a potential impact on their life.

Our MARC program focuses on helping students to develop a sense of shared community, while helping students to learn about being responsible and caring members of society. We do not deny the serious challenges that face you in today’s environment, where healthy choices may not be the norm. But we embrace the concern of Clarkson College students over these issues and work to promote good choices on a widespread basis.
