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.
