4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I've never been pressured to participate in drugs.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't drink or do any drugs, but people seem to be able to access it very easily, so if that's what you're into, it's here. Be aware however, that the university has a LOT of policies, so you can get in trouble really quickly if you're not careful.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Bucknell has a mentality of work hard, play hard. Most students will go out on the weekends and have fun with their friends, but they don't let partying get in the way of their academics. As for availability of alcohol, you will quickly meet upper classmen that can get you alcohol so there is no reason to bring a fake ID. The bar (Bull Run) is very good at spotting fake ones and it isn't worth getting caught.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I did not expect so many kids here to use drugs but it is a very prevalent atmosphere, even living in a residential college.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I feel very safe and not pressured to take part in any kind of drug use

Just like most college campuses in the country, there’s drug use at Bucknell, but it’s certainly not very visible on campus or at parties. Marijuana is fairly typical, but students will usually smoke it in privacy. Often, after a night out, students will go back to their room or house and smoke, but it doesn’t seem that there are many Bucknellians who are “potheads” and smoke daily. Occasionally, you might catch the scent of pot wafting down your hall, but other than that, you could go all four years at Bucknell without witnessing drug use.

There are some groups that are notorious for cocaine usage. But again, you won’t likely encounter this unless you want to. Students do not really talk about it too much, and there is not any peer pressure unless you choose to be a part of that group. Sometimes you might hear a student say they took Adderall or other caffeine pills before a test in order to stay up and study. Overall, though, if the typical Bucknellian wants to be under the influence, they’re going to choose alcohol.
