Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

According to students, drugs besides alcohol are somewhat noticeable on campus. Most of the drug complaints are based on the marijuana that is being used. There is also a use of prescription drugs among campus students. The use of drugs is noticeable depending on what group with which a person hangs out.

Alcohol use is very prevalent on campus. A great deal of students (whether of age or underage) drink socially throughout the week. There is not a huge amount of peer pressure to drink, and people are accepted whether or not they drink. A student’s social life does not have to be centered on drugs and alcohol use. When discussing underage drinking, almost all students agree that underage drinkers have a nearly unlimited amount of access to alcohol. This is in part because of friends made who are of age or attending parties. Though the temptation and ability to drink is high, not all students take part in it. It depends on the group and the amount of peer pressure that is prevalent.

When the school newspaper is published, there is a section that includes instances of underage drinking, as well as drug usage. The underage drinking includes issuances of "Minors in Possession" and appropriate legal actions being taken. This also goes for the use of drugs on campus.
