3 College Junior

Drug Safety: If you want it, you're going to be able to find it.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: The drug scene isn't super noticeable until you go on twitter after following a lot of Salisbury people and some of those "Salisbury Snaps" or "Salisbury TMZ" accounts. There's people talking about drugs and alcohol all over twitter. But they're not all talk, they're doing it too.. just behind closed doors. The party scene consists mostly of alcohol and marijuana. Adderall and Vivance are just a text away if you need a study buddy.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have not noticed too much drug used except some dealing during class, but drinking is apparent on the weekends because I see people carrying in a lot of alcohol sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are quite a few people I have met who partake inn drugs such as marijuana and adderall. Not only do they smoke or take pills but they are also selling drugs to other students.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Salisbury University is considered a "dry campus". If and only if you are 21, you are allowed to possess alcohol but it has to be confined to your dorm/apartment and you cannot distribute it to underage minors. Peer pressure is not a huge issue here but, like most other campuses, it is present. Alcohol visibility on campus is not a problem, as policy enforcement prevents alcohol or alcohol paraphernalia.

Drugs on campus are present, but not excessive. Certainly, alcohol and marijuana are the most used—and sometimes abused—drugs on campus. However, they are the norm, and students do not really make a big deal of it. Furthermore, there is no real drug trade on campus in regard to hardcore drugs, such as cocaine—though they are used in small numbers. As a result, there is no real pressure to do drugs—it is an individual's choice whether to participate.

While drugs are easily accessible and ever-present on campus, the University Police does not turn a blind eye. The police are quick to respond to any visible drunken incident or drug presence, especially if the student is underage, so it is not uncommon to hear stories of students running from houses to prevent being arrested by incoming officers. Also, though marijuana and alcohol often slip through police patrols, the other "hardcore" drugs, if at all found, are quick to be eliminated. Ultimately, drugs are an everyday reality, but not a major concern here.
