Drug Safety: It is up to the individual in question when deciding if they want to take part.

4 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I am naieve, I dont know of drug issues.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I, personally, do not partake in drugs. I know people who do, but have never really been judged or excluded for NOT using drugs.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Depending on the crowd that you hang out with it can be a problem for some. Although, it is college and it can have that typical college feel. People do not drag you into it though if you are uncomfortable with it.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I think our biggest problem is weed. Being an RA, I've had some experience in dealing with residents and weed but it's still pretty tame compared to a lot of schools.

Like any other college, Auburn does have to deal with the presence of drugs. Fortunately, if you're not looking for that kind of recreation, then you probably won't come across it.

Most students cite alcohol and marijuana among the most commonly used drugs at Auburn. Caffeine and amphetamine drugs, like Ritalin and Adderall, are also common and associated with concentration. Use of cocaine is occasionally present. If you choose to take that route, then you do so at your own risk. If not, then you probably won't come in contact with many drugs. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, then don't hesitate to leave or contact someone for help, if necessary.
