We’ve been saying this for years, SUNY students go crazy in college. One of their schools, Cortland, even made it to #1 on our list of Underrated Party Schools.
So it does not surprise us at all that 8 of the Top 50 colleges in the United States with the highest drug arrests per capita happen to be SUNY schools. Take a look at this “Drugs on Campus” chart from ProjectKnow.
Take it from us, when you’re going to school in upstate New York, drugs are almost a necessity.
And how about the reaction from the SUNY New Paltz (#1 on the list) trying to pivot the conversation? “The safety of our students is top priority,” New Paltz spokeswoman Melissa Kaczmarek said in a statement. “As such, we are not surprised by this data, as it is well-known that New Paltz has restrictive policies with respect to drug use/possession.”
Ummmm you’re on the same list as Coastal Carolina University, WVU, Delaware, and CU Boulder. Tell me again how you’re not the same as these historic party schools?
