4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Personally I have not seen anyone smoking or drinking but I've heard stories about the dorms and that they drink and smoke a lot in there. The hallway apparently smells like weed sometimes.

Drug Safety: Drug scene at school is not that big of an activity. Sure, students will smoke outside every here and then. However, it all depends on the people that you hang out with, and what you want to get out of your high school experience. Drinking is always a much more popular activity.

Drug Safety: Penn State as a whole is a "dry" campus, so if alcohol is found in the dorms, etc. it will be punished and the alcohol or drug paraphernalia will be taken. People in education majors found partying or abusing alcohol or drugs will be forced out of their major. Other than that, many students participate in drinking, but I do not get the sense that peer pressure is a big part of our campus.

Drug Safety: I rarely hear about people using drugs at penn state berks, but when I do its always about how Penn State Cops busted them for using drugs at a party. Most kids get suspended from classes or the whole semester when they get caught using drugs

Drug Safety: Almost every drug dealer at this school always gets caught. The campus police are very onto them. Peer pressure isn't too big. Alcohol visibility is much more common.
