4 College Student

Drug Safety: Nobody has ever pressured me to drink or do drugs, but I would recommend associating yourself with people who don't drink if thats not your thing.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: If you're into it, cool. If you're not, also cool. no one makes you do anything you don't want to do and you can find all types of people.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: As a Resident Assistant last year, I was able to experience and deal with, first-hand, the prevalent drug usage on our campus. It's really a shame...

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You can choose what you are comfortable with regarding alcohol and drugs at Elon. I have never felt peer pressured into any decision. I do not use drugs and a drink on the weekends. I feel like I am similar to most Elon students

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A good majority of the students drink, but as for drugs it's more secretive. Unless you do drugs, you don't know about it.

This is college, so naturally there is going to be a certain population that chooses to use illegal drugs. However, this sort of thing isn't at all prevalent at Elon. Room checks are regularly conducted by RAs, so if anyone has drug paraphernalia they are immediately written up; there are different levels of punishments for different infractions, but the university won't go easy on those who break the law. On the whole you can be confident that Elon students are level-headed, sober, drug-free students. As far as drinking is concerned-yes, it occurs, but everyone's pretty responsible. Students make it a point to have designated drivers, and if not there's Safe Rides.

Students say they never feel pressure to drink or do drugs at Elon. In fact, many on campus choose not to drink at all. As mentioned earlier, students tend to be level-headed, so if you're looking for a school where you can find people to hang out with and not feel pressured into drugs, Elon is definitely it.
