5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: This campus is pretty drug/alcohol free, which is nice.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't live on campus. I am also a returning student, so I'm a bit older than the first time students, I'm not one to succumb to "peer pressure" and whatnot.

Drug Safety: Alcohol use is popular in the bar scene as the campus is centered in downtown Indianapolis. Other than that, drug use is very minimally noticeable.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The most popular drug on campus is probably the same one on most other campuses—caffeine. There just isn’t a huge illegal drug scene at IUPUI. Underage drinking is the one thing that might fit into this category, but most students that live on campus do not get very involved with drugs. There are surely some off-campus parties and gatherings where students can find drugs, but it would probably take a bit of effort on a student’s part to get some marijuana or any other narcotics.

IUPUI has recently taken on a fairly aggressive smoke-free campaign. Smoking cigarettes is not allowed within 30 feet of any building doorway. There are special ashtrays located in designated areas for students that choose to smoke. Although the new rules are not always abided, the message is very clear. There are also a number of smoking cessation programs for students that want to quit smoking.
