College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene is basically non existent. I've only seen someone use drugs once out of my two years I've attended my school.

Drug Safety: The drug scene is not that bad. it is not very noticeable. there is some peer pressure but it isn't that bad most people keep to themselves and don't make a big deal out of it.

Drug Safety: Not to many people get caught actually using weed or alcohol but if you ask, the vast majority will admit to using either and even ask if you would like to join. Nobody gets judged it they say "no".

Drug Safety: Alcohol is everywhere it flows like water and the police do not care at all. Even if you are under-aged. Marijuana is big and easy to get but the police are big on cracking that down. You can have alcohol in your dorm if you are 21 and if you are under-aged just dont be stupid about it. Alcohol is at every party and is easy for anyone to get at any time. Those are the two drugs mainly. I saw ecstasy a few times at party but other than that nothing too crazy. Alcohol is the main drug just like any other campus. Except this is the only place I have seen it so accepted and the police consider it a low priority even for under-aged students. The campus definitely isn't dry and doesn't pretend to be.

Drug Safety: It's important to educate students on the effects of drugs and alcohol. They provide examples of the consequences behind drinking alcohol while driving along with being underlying the influence of other drugs as well. The school also have resource agency that provide pamphlets to educate students on the topics of certain valuable information regarding drugs and alcohol.

Drug usage on campus is not very popular, but it depends on the people you hang out with. You may smell Black & Mild cigars or cigarettes around, but it is rather easy to avoid. Some students choose to smoke marijuana off-campus and in other areas, but on campus, it is absolutely not tolerated. The University has a very strict policy on drug usage. Alcohol is preferred by most students. You will see the occasional drunk guy or girl returning to the dorm after a night of partying, but it is not a common sight. Some may be shocked at how small A&T's drug scene is compared to how the media portrays the college drug usage, but the Resident Assistants, faculty, staff, and campus police do a great job here. Although there are people in place to rid the campus of dangerous substances, it is not solely in their hands. As a student, you have a responsibility to make sure you stay away from or report any drug use you see occurring on campus. If you do not want to engage in drug use, make sure your friends know your stance on the subject and respect your decision. Some students take part in drinking and drug use because they see others doing it, but being steady in your decision will make it easier for you to resist. When you become of age, drinking alcohol is permissible. However, if you live on campus and have a roommate that is not of age, you are not allowed to ingest alcohol in your room or even house it in your refrigerator. These precautions are taken to ensure the safety of all students.
