5 College Junior

Drug Safety: i myself rarely see drug use around campus, but like any other college partying takes place therefore alcohol is involved. i've never seen either of these on campus though

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The school is pretty consistent at cracking down.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: On campus, alcohol is not allowed at all. So you have to be kind of discreet because security walks around all night. However, if you want to drink, you pretty much can get away with it. You just have to be smart. We have something called AlchoholEDU that is required to take. It's pretty insightful, but I'd be lying if I said that everyone pays attention or follows the program's instructions.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol is everywhere. Fraternity's have beer and liquor posters all over. So alcohol is a major part of off campus parties but actual drugs are not hugely apparent, at least not at parties I have been too. I know drugs go on but they are not as visible as alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I haven't seen anyone take drugs outside of drinking alcohol. Alcohol on campus isn't uncommon but its not a huge problem. BUT, off campus drinking is common and high at parties.

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.
