3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If you want to smoke, you usually go down into the gorge, or at least in the woods. Easy to get away with

Drug Safety: Our campus is a dry campus, meaning no alcohol is allowed on campus by anyone. I feel this is a good policy for a college campus as we are there to study and learn and earn an education to benefit our future. There is not alot of peer pressure at our campus to drink or do drugs, particularly if you are a member of a sport.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: There is a lot of drug and alcohol use on campus, but you aren't treated differently if you don't use it.

Drug Safety: Penn State boasts a big talk about anti-drinking, but I don't see too much done about it. However, this is mainly because it forces students to do this in private, which allows for scholarly focus.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: I'm going to be honest, there are many people that I've met that take part in some form of drug or alcohol. Along with the people that I've met, you can tell that some people are high or drunk during the school day. I don't go for that, at all. I believe that during the week, the focus should be on school work; not getting high or partying. The peer pressure aspect isn't that broad or prominent. I have been offered weed, I declined and that was that. No one was pressuring me to do it. They respected my decision.
