4 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking is very present on campus, as it is a Greek social scene, but if you don't drink then you will not be forced to. Public safety is also pretty lenient about it so long as you're in control and they don't see it. However, there is a point system that disciplines you if you go overboard with it. Weed is also common on campus. However, the rules are much less lenient with marijuana than with alcohol. It is Pennsylvania, after all. I haven't seen much of the other drugs on campus, except maybe cocaine.

Drug Safety: There is definitely a party scene and many students do consume alcohol/drugs however i feel there is no pressure to do so and that it is up to the individual.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is extremely present on campus. Other than drinking, there's not much else contributing to the social scene, which is a little disappointing since my parents are paying 50 grand to this school. I do wish all of my weekends here weren't focused on binge drinking. I came here because I was hoping for a bit of a deeper experience along with the occasional crazy night- not getting drunk in any of the spare time I have.

Drug Safety: Being so isolated, drinking on the weekends is a pretty common activity for many Bucknell students. There is always SOMETHING going on, but it depends on how often you choose to partake in it. I've never felt pressured to drink and if that's not your scene, there are other things to do on the weekends, you just need to look a little harder for it. It may feel like everyone is going out on the weekends, but that's not true.

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.
