3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A high percentage of students take part using drugs on this campus but there are very few who will force others to partake in those activities.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There really isn't any peer pressure and the school makes students take an alcohol and drug safety online course every semester. The medical center will help students who have taken drugs or have alcohol poisoning without judgement and it's very confidential. However if the RA or security finds out about drug use and underage drinking, you will be suspended and sometimes will have to pay fines and face expulsion or criminal charges. Alcohol poisoning is very bad at this school, but drugs are rarely used.

5 College Student

Drug Safety: Peer pressure is very small, everyone is accepting of people that don't drink. And campus security is always monitoring and there to help people in need.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: it is like any school.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People drink a lot! and by themselves.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

At Allegheny, if you are only friends with people who are very anti-drug, you’ll never see or hear anything about drugs on campus. But, if you are friends with a lot of different kinds of people and go to a bunch of parties, you’ll realize just how many people smoke pot and even how many people use harder drugs. If you happen to be looking for drugs on campus, you can find whatever you are looking for.

Drugs tend to travel only in certain circles, so if you stay out of those circles, you won’t see them. Also, peer pressure is relatively low with drugs, but if you're at a party with an open keg, you'll be expected to have a red Solo cup in hand. Security rarely busts parties and rarely stops students unless they're making some sort of scene or destroying property. Parties thrown by Greeks and athletes usually have two or three kegs tapped out by the end of the night. Weed use is rampant in off-campus houses, but first-year students wouldn't know unless they went around looking and asking. Ultimately, the rigor of Allegheny coursework keeps people from doing drugs too regularly, and those who try to maintain their drug habit instead of schoolwork will likely drop out.
