A senior student was referred for a second time to SJA, this time for possession of marijuana. Police found the student sleeping in his car on campus after he had been drinking. The student agreed to let the police search him, and they found him in possession of marijuana. The student admitted to violating the university’s drug policy and accepted a censure. A similar violation in the future would result in a more serious sanction such as disciplinary probation, suspension or dismissal.
