As it turns out, the squeaky clean image that Furman students project is more than just an image. Drugs are a difficult thing to find on Furman's campus. Many students say they know of one or two people who use drugs, but a large majority have never even seen an illegal substance on Furman's property. Although there are drugs around, their users are hardly numerous enough to have an actual "drug scene."
Use among Furman students is also much quieter than at most colleges, because it is not a socially-accepted norm. Those who do use illegal drugs are a social irregularity at Furman. Most students are too involved in campus
activities or school work to even think about using drugs. Although there may be more drug use than some students think, there is hardly any impact on Furman's social culture.
