Going Against the Norm—Straight Edge

It has become a social norm for young adults to engage in typical college activities on the weekends such as smoking weed and drinking. A small percentage decide to rebel against that scene and forge a different path by being straight edge. Straight edgers choose not to smoke, drink or do drugs. The group Straightedge at Columbia is currently in the process of becoming a recognized organization for the upcoming fall semester.
