3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There's not an uncontrollable issue of drugs and alcohol usage on campus.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It is pretty fair. In my opinion there is still some more that can be done to encourage a drug free campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at ECSU is not that big of a deal, depending on your lifestyle you are surrounded by people who reflect you.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug safety policy at ECSU seems to be very lenient. The campus is full of drugs and alcohol at all times. Apparently Marijuana is extremely popular on campus and seems to be ignored by campus police.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Of course some students do drugs, but the containment and use is kept very discreetly.

According to students, drug use at Elizabeth City State University has become a major problem. Students utilize drugs within the dormitories, out of sight from the police. On the weekends, many students have been seen using drugs before and after the parties. Weed is probably the most dominant drug used on campus, and many reports have said that students get "high" before parties so they can ensure a good time.

Elizabeth City State University is supposed to be a dry campus, with a no-alcohol policy; however, students continue to disregard the policy when possible, especially on the weekends. Students usually participate in what they call "preparation" before parties. This means that individuals have to get drunk before the party, so that they will have a good time, and then drink after the party. As senseless as it may sound, that is what students do on the weekends. Campus police are only capable of doing so much. They do dorm checks, road blocks, and patrol the campus 24 hours, just to try and keep drug and alcohol usage down, but it does get complicated for these officers.
