As we all know, WVU has always maintained an infamous reputation as a “party school,” annually topping the Princeton Review’s list of the top ten party schools in the nation. But this ‘enthusiasm’ can often put students in a dangerous position. Students in need of medical attention due to alcohol or other drug use can face harsh disciplinary actions from the University if their incident is reported. As a result fearful students often forgo necessary medical treatment for themselves or friends, sometimes with deadly consequences.
The introduction of a Good Samaritan Policy (GSP) at WVU would change university policy so that students in need of medical assistance because of alcohol or other drug use, and those attempting to assist, would receive amnesty against disciplinary University sanctions. These sanctions would be replaced with educational or rehabilitation services. The adoption of a GSP at WVU would further encourage a partnership between the university and its students as well as promote personal responsibility and educational attitudes about alcohol and drug use.
