College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Alcohol is pretty visible, especially during football season. Just don't act a fool and no one will bother you. Don't do drugs, they aren't going to help you out in life.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I commute a pretty good distance to campus, and am not involved in much of the regular campus scene. It's hard for me to say, except from what I remember when I did spend more time there. Campus police and local police always seemed to handle things pretty well, and most people knew it.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not being a user myself, it doesn't bother me when people decide to experiment as long as they do it responsibly. When their experimentation gets out of hand, it puts others reputations and lives in danger.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Everyone smokes weed, you're in the boonies.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Considering I have not been confronted with it yet, and do not take part in such actions, I would say the drug scene is not a huge issue at my school. Only a few times have I witnessed students taking part in such actions. The peer pressure is also not an issue; if it's not your idea of a good time, no one forces it on you. Those who take part understand why others would not. I believe the policy enforcement has become much stricter in previous years. Three weeks into school a student in my dorm building was arrested late at night for trying to smoke in his room, and I have even seen police officers with specially trained dogs in the parking lot in the middle of the night from my room window. My college seems to be well-known for parties, alcohol, and drug use, but if you stay away from it, it's like it isn't even there.
