4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not very many people do or take many drugs here on campus. Mostly because not only do we have our RA's who do weekly room checks along with the campus police, but the city police is literally across the street. I think most people are to scared to do much of anything like that while on campus

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't do drugs, nor do I hang out with anyone who does them, but I haven't heard much about drug abuse on our campus.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Surprise, people do it, on and off campus

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Being in a somewhat religious town, the need for alcohol and drugs is not a necessity, and those who do partake, do not pressure you to do so.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are some information on the dangers of alcohol and drug usage.

Drug use at ASU is not very noticiable, but that doesn't mean it isn't present. A large percentage of students have tried alcohol and marijuana, and a good percentage of those drink or smoke on a regular basis. Underage drinking and smoking weed is a common problem at any university, and ASU is no different.

To help with the problem, ASU has multiple pamphlets of information regarding topics such as binge drinking, drug abuse, and other related subjects to help inform students about the dangers of substance abuse. The campus also participates in the drug-free campaigns. Another thing that helps with awareness is a biannual health fair. At this fair, police officers have little games and tasks meant to instruct students on the dangers of drinking and driving. There is also an occasional drug saftey fair that depicts symptoms and ramifications of drug abuse.
