Preventing Drink Spiking

DRINK SPIKING IS A REAL DANGER

We share this information to reduce risks and enhance campus safety, with no intent to blame victims of crimeOnly criminals are responsible for their crimes. Drink spiking is the addition of a drug, chemical, or alcohol to beverages in order to impair or incapacitate the person who consumes the beverage. Alcohol, such as Vodka, can be added to a drink that you do not expect to have any or as much alcohol, causing the drink to impair you more than expected. This may be done in order to facilitate sexual assault or other crimes. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages can be spiked, including water. People of any gender, race, or sexual orientation can be the target or the perpetrator of drink spiking. 

Drink spiking is a crime, and will be prosecuted by Police. Rowan University will also discipline students responsible for drink spiking.
