As is always the case, students, alumni, and guests are expected to abide by the Honor Code as well as Connecticut and federal laws.

  • Documented violations will be referred to the conduct process.
  • Students are reminded to seek help for themselves or their friends/peers under the medical amnesty policy.  The College’s medical amnesty policy states that “no student seeking medical attention (either for oneself or another) for an alcohol or other drug-related overdose will be subject to the College’s student conduct process for a violation of using or possessing alcohol or other drugs.”
