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.
