4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Being off campus I don't know what happens on the dorms but there is a strict no drugs policy that is enforced. I have known no incidents of drug use so far. If it's there, it's very low key.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: not many students partake in taking drugs.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Our policy is a drug free smoke free and alcohol free campus.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drugs are available on campus for those who wants to find it. More should be done to reduce the availability of drugs on campus

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: My School prohibits the use of drugs, but its possible people engage in that type of activity but just not on campus. I just don't keep company with those type of people.

Drugs are not prevalent on Oakwood’s campus. Most of the students have high standards and values for themselves, but there are always the small few that will engage in drug use. The only drugs that have really been reported on campus are marijuana, alcohol, and cocaine. These activities are usually done behind closed doors, and it is not a noticeable part of campus life. Alcohol and drug use are both restricted from campus, and if a student is seen in possession, that person will face dire consequences, including fines up to $500. Oakwood University has a zero-tolerance policy and takes drug use very seriously.

Oakwood’s environment promotes a healthy diet, a healthy mind, and a healthy body. Holistically, Oakwood promotes good health and the environment discourages the use of harmful substances. Students are most influenced by their peers, and depending on their friends, they can either be pressured to use drugs or not. Therefore, it is important that students are careful in picking their friends. Oakwood goes by the motto: “Whatever you are looking for, you will find it.” If students are looking for drugs, they will find students with similar interests, but if they are looking for knowledge, they will find peers who have the same goals.
