3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The student body is given an abundance of information regarding the effects of drug usage. We are able to keep ourselves away from this scene if we choose to do so.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinking is very common, but I know a number of people that don't drink and still have a lot of fun at parties. No one will make you feel bad about it. The only drug that is common on campus is weed, and again, it's totally your choice.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are somewhat visible on campus, and many students drink alcohol. Students do not usually pressure others to take part in drug or alcohol use. The drug policies are more strictly enforced than the alcohol policies.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking Is Popular – The social scene at Albion College frequently contains parties with alcohol involved. Besides drinking though, drugs are not popular at Albion. You never really see or hear people using them.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs Not the Problem, Alcohol Is – The drug scene isn't that bad. It isn't really noticeable and but I can't say what it is like at parties. As far as alcohol, drinking is a pretty popular past time for students, especially on the weekend because there is very little to do within the town on the weekend. Aside from campus events, frat parties draw large crowds.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

As mentioned by many students, the drug scene on campus is hardly overwhelming. Drugs are definitely present, but they don't often find you if you aren't looking for them. This is why there are fewer drug violations on campus than alcohol violations. As with most college campuses, alcohol is very present. This is a fact, whether the administration likes it or not. A lot of students use the excuse that they drink because there is so little to do at Albion, and this may be true. The trouble is when students become dependent on it to have a good time. Moderation is key, as usual.

The most recent craze of drugs, as with many American campuses, has been the use of amphetamines. Students mainly take these to pull all-nighters and study. This may say something about how desperate some students are to keep up with their classes and Albion's rigorous curriculum.
