Drug Safety: As far as drugs like marijuana, scenes aren't very noticeable, but alcohol is fairly prominent on weekends. Many students can legally drink though. I would say peer pressure, like anywhere, is pretty high. Security is always watching parties though and stops them frequently.

Drug Safety: All of my RA's have done of good job of stressing the importance of not doing drugs. I don't think there is much of a drug scene on campus.

Drug Safety: The drug safety on campus is pretty strict, primarily because the campus is smoke free, and this deters many students from taking part in drugs on campus.

Drugs really aren’t that big of a problem at High Point. The most common drugs are alcohol, marijuana, and Adderall. Although there are ways to get drugs on campus, it’s not a huge part of the social scene. Most people drink and smoke recreationally. The majority of Adderall use is around midterms and finals, and definitely not a part of the party scene at HPU. Using drugs is completely a personal decision. No one on campus really cares if you drink or smoke. It is present on campus, but it's 100 percent your decision to partake or not. There is certainly a more noticeable presence of alcohol consumption. Between frats and parties, alcohol is at most social functions. Marijuana isn’t as visible as alcohol, but if you’re really into smoking, then there are places to go. However, marijuana won’t be found at most mainstream parties because of the heavy penalties associated with it on campus.

If you are caught drinking, then there normally is a fine. However, you’re usually only fined if you’re caught drinking in the dorms. If a fraternity party gets broken up, then security will tell everyone to just go home. If you’re caught smoking, then it’s a much bigger deal. If you happen to get caught smoking weed, then you will suffer a pretty stiff fine, future drug tests, and the possibility of getting expelled. Since High Point is a smoke-free campus, getting caught smoking is by far a bigger issue than getting caught drinking.
