3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It is easy to get in trouble for alcohol use underage. the dorms are dry and therefore getting written up is a pretty big deal here. The drug scene is not as controlled at Clemson. not many students choose to take part but the students that do are not typically caught. There is not much direct peer pressure but the constant "drunk" surroundings makes it hard to say no.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are not a major problem on campus but off-campus drinking is definitely prominent.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I can't really say what the scene is since I do not part take in this scene

College Senior

Drug Safety: I don't have much interaction with this, but almost everyone drinks and parties on the weekends--there's not really anything else to do. Some of my friends have gotten busted downtown and on campus and there never seemed to be any lasting repercussions.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: I do not have enough experience with it to know, but many of the people I do know partake in drugs and it seems very easy for them.

Students at Clemson speak positively of the drug scene. Besides the heavy alcohol consumption, drugs are only available if you're looking for them. Those people who do drugs don't tend to pressure those who don't.

Whether you see college as a time of experimentation or as four years with your head in your books, drugs will only influence your life as much as you let them. Heavy drug usage such as cocaine and heroin is rather scarce, which is a good sign for a school dedicated to becoming a top public university. At Clemson, you will find that the students committed to academic success avoid drugs entirely.
