3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: NYU is in the center of a lot of bars. I have never really seen drugs

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is a lot of privilege and thus a lot of hard drugs.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I guess kids do take drugs and drink from what I hear from others, but if you choose to not do so, you are not judged. It's easy to find people who don't partake in it.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You know it happens, but you don't have to be involved if you don't want to be. Somewhat hard to access if you're not part of Greek life and you're underage without a fake (for alcohol).

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I would say that the visible drug use at my school is very low, but you will sometimes hear people talking about drug use. There are strict policies for drug use therefore I doubt students will want to risk the consequences.

Drug safety is very simple on NYU's campus: you either join them or you don't. It is very easy to avoid drugs at NYU, as drug use is not something that is highly publicized or promoted on campus. Therefore, it is up to you whether to get involved in drug use. There is a strict drug and alcohol policy in NYU dorms, and violating this policy often results in severe consequences.
