4 College Junior

Drug Safety: People do it, but it's regulated fairly well. Students know not to do drugs on campus, because it's prohibited and rules are strictly enforced; scholarships become at risk, and that's something that people do not mess around with.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't see drugs used around campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The school isn't heavy on drugs and alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Campus safety is all over this stuff, no doubt about that.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The best thing about DePaul is the diverse community. You can enjoy college any way you want to with any group of friends. There is no one way of socializing. Groups all very and there is no judgement.

The city of Chicago provides students with access to any drug they could possibly want, but most students seem to stick to the occasional use of marijuana. There is heavier stuff used by students, but if you don’t want to see it, you really don’t have to because the heavy drug scene pretty much stays under wraps. In addition to marijuana, Adderall is pretty common during midterms and finals.

There is little to no pressure associated with using drugs, and the diverse student body leaves room for a lot of people who don't associate themselves with drugs. The University, and Chicago itself, seems to take the selling of drugs much more seriously than the use of them, but the No. 1 reason a student would get kicked out of housing is for possessing drugs on campus.
