Alcohol and drugs are not condoned on campus. This does include sporting events and all other MSU sponsored activities such as concerts, dances, etc.
There is a team approach to combating substance abuse, involving the MSU Police Department, Student Life, and the University Counseling Center.
Periodic programs are presented to educate the community. Alcohol and drugs are a specific topic during orientation programs for all new and transfer students. The specific policy for students as outlined in the Eagle Handbook is:
"No student, either singly or in concert with others, shall willfully: have in his or her possession or consume alcoholic beverages in public or on University-owned or controlled grounds or exhibit drunken behavior on University-owned or controlled property; use, possess, transfer or sell drug paraphernalia, marijuana, or any other legally controlled substance on University-owned or controlled property. "
University employees are covered in Personnel Policy PG 47-Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace.
