3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't know of many drugs that are used but there is a lot of drinking. Unless you buy alcohol and go to parties you aren't around alcohol but you do see drunk people. Drinking on campus is a no tolerance policy.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I think that Kent, just like any other university, has drug use, but it is nothing extreme and barely noticeable.

Drug Safety: I'm not sure actually. I was a commuter student so I never really noticed any form of drinking or drug use during my time there.

There is a drug scene at Kent. However, such knowledge can easily be obtained through reason and not through experience. The drug scene is not very visible––especially on campus. One is most likely to encounter it at off-campus parties, but alcohol is far more prevalent. As far as pressure to drink and use drugs goes, whether or not students experience it rests mainly on the people with which they choose to spend their time. Neither drugs nor alcohol are absolutely essential to having a full social life, and partying can be done responsibly.

Partying in the dorms is a separate issue. Each hall is patrolled nightly by yellow-shirted security guards, and the discovery of substance abuse in a dormitory will have definite consequences, as these guards don't hesitate to involve the local police. In the dorms, smoking is less prevalent than drinking due to its detectable aroma and the presence of sensitive smoke detectors. Those students who don't keep the noise level in check are the most likely to get caught. The policies in place are enforced, but students do risk drinking in the dorms. One will likely find at Kent what he or she could expect to find on most college campuses. While present, alcohol and other drugs are entirely avoidable; the degree to which a student becomes involved with them depends on a student’s desires.
