5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I believe that the staff know that they cannot stop students from doing these things but they do stop the publicity of it. Students are fined at the sight of the use of alcohol or drugs.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Some the students wreak a scent of drugs and alcohol.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Since you can smoke tobacco on campus it is fairly noticeable of the drug/ alcohol scene.

College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene at Alabama A&M University is not really big, although it depends on who you hang out with. People usually smoke on campus and that's the most drug scene that I've seen around campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Drugs are a huge issue on campus. Rumor has it that drugs are usually seen more in the male dormitories. Although drugs are not seen in the female dormitories as much, they are not nonexistent. You can encounter them at some point. In the crime statistics, of all the campus violations, the ones involving drugs are the highest—more so than alcohol offenses. 

A word of advice to the incoming freshmen or to anyone who is thinking of attending A&M: be careful who you hang around. If you choose to hang around people who do drugs, then you'll be putting yourself in an unsafe position. However, if you choose to hang out with people who are drug-free, then you'll have a safer college experience.
