4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: To be honest...since I do not do drugs, or hang with kids who do, I honestly cannot provide a knowledgeable response to this question.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol always comes with the partying which is also in abundance

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene on my campus is not bad at all.The students on campus or students that live off campus truly know better because our rules are really effective. From what I have been around, students do not pressure other students to drink or smoke. They are very mature when it comes to things like that. Our students would not risk their education for drugs or illegal use of alcohol. I believe we take our education way more serious than that. They are times when students get caught, but once others find out they get more cautious about those things. We have students that takes those things seriously and if they can they would put a bug in others ears about how bad it is. They truly try to inform us about the importance of staying away from those things on campus or off campus.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: You don't see any student partake in drug related activities

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have never attended the school but if it's like my last college people there probably smoke weed.

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.
