4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Try not to get involved

1 person found this useful Report
3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not much is ever covered on drugs, more focused on alcohol abuse awareness.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You are going to find drugs and alcohol on this campus. It's a known party school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I have been pushed towards drugs before (I never tried them though), but if you have a level head on your shoulders, you will be just fine!

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: People will let you know if they don't want to do something, but the good thing about the people around here is if you say no they don't pressure you. According to the local news Heroine is on the rise, Molly is now turning into "Bath Salts" and one guy has been expelled and jail for a drug bust. The law enforcement is cracking down on these things, as they should, and trying to make this as safe of a campus and community as possible. The main thing around these parts is drinking, being one of the top party schools in the nation (in which we are trying to lose that title) people like to come here for the bars and the fests. My recommendation, just be safe and enjoy responsibly. Don't drink and drive!

Most students know little about the drug scene because, obviously, they don't do drugs (or are just playing innocent). Either way, that's basically how it is on campus- you are unaware of the drug scene if you aren't a part of it. Drugs aren't in your face, and it's rare to even see marijuana, or smell it for that matter, at parties. Alcohol is the drug of choice among OU's majority, and while hard drugs are no doubt on campus, they're not floating around.

Basically, when it comes to drugs on campus, if you want some, you probably can find them somewhat easily. But the good thing is that those who aren't into the drug scene are rarely, if ever, affected by it. There's no pressure put on students to do anything they don't want to do. And sometimes it seems downright hard to find the things you do want to do. But as with any college campus, it's there if you look hard enough.
