3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It could be more detailed, most social drinking does not occur on campus. It occurs at bars and clubs off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The majority of students drink alcohol or smoke marijuana. They do not do other drugs as often.

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: FSU is ranked the #1 party school in America...need I say more? I don't partake, but it is very noticeable especially with anyone involved in FSU's vibrant Greek life.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Our school is very safe about drugs.

Your in a college town so you might be exposed to those who use drugs but there is no peer pressure to use them.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug scene is well known by students but doesn't seem to be hampered at all by administration. Mandatory alcohol awareness and knowledge online course was given to students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

While illegal drugs are present on campus, they aren't highly visible, and most students don't pay much attention to them. Alcohol and marijuana are the drugs of choice, although harder stuff, like ecstasy and amphetamines are available if you know where to look. Although some hard drugs are present, serious abuse is not a problem here. FSU does have a student chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws), and we recently saw the first of what is planned to become an annual Hemp Fest held in Doak Campbell Stadium.

FSU has a very strict drug policy. However, the users and abusers tend to stay off the radar, so you won't hear much about arrests and expulsions. For the most part, the drug culture is quiet and secretive. People who want to be involved in it can find it on their own, while those who prefer to stay clean won't be tempted. Drugs aren't pushed on anyone, and no one will be forced to do them should they choose not to. It isn't as if dealers are vending their wares in the hallways.
