4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Yeah you won't find many drug frequenters at this school, as you'd expect. There's a few, like everywhere, but it's pretty minor.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is never really a drug problem at Ave Maria University. There is a pub but that require ID to be able to drink or smoke. Also there is constant security around campus on the look out for underaged drinking and smoking.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not yet enrolled, but I don't believe that many of the students here could ever do drugs. not because of lack of availability, but it seems a campus averse to such things as a whole.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Only Alcohol and Cigarettes – There is a very popular on-campus pub, and the rules about not keeping alcohol in your room, while strictly enforced, may be side-stepped, so there is drinking and smoking - but very little compared to a bigger school. There is practically no binge drinking... and no illegal drugs. Not a place to go if you want a party school.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Don't Ask Don't Tell Your RA – Compared to many secular schools, the drug use and visibility is relatively low. Drugs screens help to keep usage down amongst the athletes but others still use on a regular basis (even during finals week). The consumption of alcohol, on the other hand,is the most widely enjoyed pastime of both students and faculty alike here at AMU. Although there is retribution for under-aged drinking, it is still rampant and quite frankly, always serves to provide others with an entertaining time.

The most noticeably used drug on campus is definitely alcohol. There is no real pressure to partake, and most students drink simply because they like it. Students who are 21 or older are allowed to have alcohol in their rooms, but younger students may not. If caught with alcohol, students under 21 can be subjected to legal and disciplinary penalties. There isn’t a lot of noticeably drunken behavior at the school, except maybe at the Pub, but that's probably to be expected. As far as enforcement of the alcohol policy is concerned, there isn’t really an overbearing strictness.

Aside from alcohol, there isn’t any other drug usage at the school—or at least, nothing particularly conspicuous. There is no tolerance of drugs at the school, and because of the illegality of the selling, buying, and consumption of drugs, students who are caught with drugs can face punishment by the University and the police. In general, though, there really is no drug scene at the University. There's a fair share of drinking, but no drugs. All in all, the atmosphere stays pretty clean.
