College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not noticed any drug use at all.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't think it is very serious

College Senior

Drug Safety: I rarely am on campus this summer due to taking an online course, but in the past, my experience on campus showed no drug use. I'm unsure since I've never lived on campus, but the students did not seem to be "on drugs" to me.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: IUPUI is a commuter school with very few or a very small percentage of students live on campus. Because of this I don't see anyone hanging out doing drugs or drinking when they have to drive home afterwards. Also, campus police and people in general are everywhere.

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.
