3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Like I said, I don't go to parties on campus so I don't really know how the drug and alcohol scene is like. Maybe if I lived on campus I would be ore informed but I am a commuter so I don't spend much time on campus especially at night.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Most times the drugs cannot be seen. If someone is smoking marijuana, you will most likely know someone is smoking by the smell but probably won't see the joint. I know one of the housing buildings allows alcohol because the students there are supposed to be 21 and over.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I do not live on campus, therefore I can not say that students abuse alcohol or any other drugs.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I haven't seen any drug or alcohol visibility on campus, possibly because I don't dorm but Ive never had any incidents.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: Though Newark has a reputation as being dangerous, I never felt unsafe on the campus, even in the evening. However, thefts did occur, and students still need to be careful. The campus police actively patrol the university.
