3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: the campus works hard to educate the students but most choose not to listen.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: If you are unsure of yourself coming in as a freshman, you can easily get swept up in the party culture.

If you know who you are, what your values are, what your limits are, and the importance of schooling you can still have fun and succeed!

Drug Safety: I definitely think the majority of this campus drinks, which if you are of age is okay. But there also is a lot of drug use from what I can tell.

College Junior

Drug Safety: There is definitely a large portion of students who partake in underage drinking and sharing of drugs. Sometimes people use drugs and alcohol for social purposes and think if they do it, it will make them cool. Coming to college is already uncomfortable, so students make poor decisions because of their perspective on the college life. I do not particularly see drug usage in front of my eyes, but I know it is prevalent because I have heard it though word of mouth.

IU is a big school, where you can be as wild as you want to
be. There are plenty of police around to make sure that nothing gets out of hand, but there are still occasions where students will drink underage or smoke pot. Alcohol is by far the most prominent drug at IU, and that's the reason most students get in trouble. Drinking occurs even in the dorms, where the presence of liquor is strictly forbidden, along with some drug use, like marijuana. You're more likely to get caught trying something in an on-campus environment than you are elsewhere.

All in all, the drug scene on campus is easy to avoid. It seems to be the general consensus that there are drugs out there and that they are easily accessible-but perhaps no one is very interested. Those who wish to avoid any encounter with any drug may be lucky enough to do so. IU is a place where students care little about drug usage and almost never feel pressure to be involved.
