3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do not hear of students taking drugs nor do I know of any.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: The campus is very diverse and in cliques, different cliques do different things.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Any kind of drugs are not popular in the campus. In fact, if you seemed to be a user, you're the one who's left out because most students are responsible when it comes to this issue. Plus, people don't have money for those kinds of stuffs anyway.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I am not aware if the drug scene at my school

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have never seen any drug abuse on campus. I'm pretty sure they are very strict about it too.

The drug scene around City College is very low key. Drugs are definitely prohibited on campus, and most students wouldn't have a clue who to go to if they wanted to buy something. A majority of the students at City College are commuters and are only on campus for classes anyway, which helps keep illicit activites at bay. Students are pretty wise when it comes to doing drugs—education is priority—so why ruin your future by doing something illegal?

When it comes to legal things like smoking, though, it's different; there are tons of smokers around school. Certain areas on campus are usually filled with smokers, such as the entrances to the general buildings and outside the cafeteria. Don't worry about being pressured to join, though. It's rare for a student to pressure another to smoke, especially since cigarettes are crazy expensive in NYC so no one wants to share.
