Drug Safety: How do you rate this? Is it good if students are taking drugs or bad?

The drug scene is this at SLU: marijuana is there if you want it, but it isn't a large part of campus life.

As far as I know, students using hard drugs is pretty rare.

Alcohol is definitely the drug of choice.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: SLU emphasizes the effects of alcohol constantly. They really make an effort to give students other opportunites than going out and drinking on the weekends as well.

College Senior

Drug Safety: I'm an older student I don't participate in these events.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Not too many people partake in drug use so its is very unnoticeable. no one pressures you into doing it on campus. the students do their thing and if people want to join, they join, else they just have fun without it.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I never really see drugs. There is the occasional pot usage but you'll find that anywhere

There is little pressure for students to get involved in drugs or alcohol. SLU offers a variety of alcohol-alternative programming run by student groups, and there are tons of alcohol-free activities both on and off campus. Alcohol is much more popular than drugs, and the people who are into drugs generally stick together.

SLU is a "wet" campus if you're 21 or older, but alcohol is prohibited on campus if you are underage. If you're underage, don't try to party on campus. If you are caught for underage drinking, you'll have to attend a conduct hearing and take an alcohol safety class. The University is pretty strict about these rules, especially in the residence halls. Therefore, students often seek nightlife opportunities off campus.  If you're 21 or older, the drinking scene is pretty big, and there are a ton of bars around the city. Still, no one will bother you if drinking isn't your scene, and there is still plenty to get involved in.
