3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are not many people doing drugs other than marijuana. It is clearly noticeable that a lot of students drink because you can always overhear them talking about it.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not that many students are involved in drugs, but everyone drinks. There are a few people I know that choose not to and no one looks on them in a bad way. They still go out to parties, they just don't partake in the alcohol part. Pretty much everyone knows that everyone drinks, it's not a secret when the lines to get in the bars are miles long.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No peer pressure. If you don't want to drink, you don't have to. There's plenty of people who don't. Regarding drug use, I don't know anyone who engages in such activities.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Drugs, like just about everything else you could possibly want, are abundantly available in Chicago. Not many students at Loyola resort to hardcore drug use, but there are certainly those that do. Although few people will admit it, it sometimes seems like the majority of undergraduates smoke marijuana at least every now and then, if not on a regular basis. Even if they avoid the green weed, a large percentage of Loyolans spend their non-study hours indulging heavily in alcohol. Overall, drug use is not prevalent, however, and students generally do not feel pressured to do drugs. No one at Loyola will shove a joint in your face and demand that you smoke it. If you choose to do drugs, it will be of your own volition. Just remember, drugs are bad, okay?

Although they tend to welcome “soft” drugs such as alcohol, nicotine, and pot, Loyola students stay away from the harder stuff. You will find few cokeheads or heroin addicts on campus. Most people who hear about the use of this sort of drug by one of their friends are utterly disappointed. Students like to have a good time, but they do not want to see their friends become the victims of rampant drug use.
