3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs are around, but it's pretty underground and you have to seek them out. Alcohol is pretty widely available, there are plenty of parties. There is little peer pressure, most students are pretty chill and respect others well. It is not a dry campus so if you are not underage then it isn't a problem as long as you behave.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Campus police is usually always on top of those situations.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Very visible to students and faculty, but no pressure to participate in the activities if you choose not too.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene is not really big. If people are doing drugs is usually just smoking. Drinking is a much more popular activity.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: i have really only noticed drinking throughout the campus community, I have not noticed anybody doing drugs

Less than half of the students on campus use drugs or drink, but you see a lot of students drinking and "partying," especially on Thursdays. All violations of the alcohol and drug rules are taken care of quickly, and the rules are strongly enforced. Underage drinking happens, but if it becomes a problem and someone could potentially hurt themselves or someone else, action will be taken. RAs tend let a lot of things slide unless someone is in danger. Unless someone is in immediate danger, many people know what is going on, but everyone is well aware that we are in college, we are adults and can take care of ourselves. Many students smoke cigarettes throughout the day, and some students smoke pot.
