Chadron State College offers wide-ranging Alcohol and Drug Education programs and services. The Office of Student Affairs, in collaboration with Health Services, focuses highly on preventive and proactive measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our students. Below is a list of current programming and educational opportunities we offer on our campus.
Chadron State College distributes its student handbook electronically to all new students and to all residential students, both new and returning. The College provides it in hard-copy form during New Student Orientation at a presentation where the Code of Conduct is reviewed. Both the Student Handbook and Residence Life Handbook contain information about Alcohol and Drug policies. The Student Handbook is updated annually and is made available on the college website for returning students and employees. Full and part-time commuting students will receive an email with the Student Handbook attached and encouragement to review the rules, policies and procedures outlined in the handbook.
