3 College Student

Drug Safety: On campus, there are those who do enjoy to participate in the use of certain illegal drugs. But there is no real effect on those who do not partake. Peer pressure is not a major factor, because of you choose not to join in, you choose not to join in.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: My university is a dry campus. We have policies that say if a student is caught with illegal substances they have to pay $500 fine and will be suspend off campus. There isn't any peer pressure for drugs on camp.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No weed unless you go to the hood

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I do not think that drugs and alcohol are visible but the students do access it rather easy weather through buying it or through access of a party.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Majority of the students smoke weed. No hard drugs though. Drinking isn't really a big issue.

On Savannah State's campus, drugs and alcohol are mostly nonexistent, and if they are used, students are pretty discreet about it. As far as campus life is concerned, everyone is working to succeed; you don't just see people walking around campus smoking. You can only find something if you're looking for it; therefore, students who decide to obtain drugs and alcohol are ultimately in search of it. Students are not peer pressured to do anything they do not want to do, considering that students are all adults. No one is trying to fit in; everyone is simply trying to be themselves.

Savannah State is a dry campus, meaning whether you are 21 years of age or not, no alcohol is allowed. Using alcohol and drugs can result in a $500 fine and a possible suspension from the University. Not to mention, there is a K-9 police dog that sniffs drugs. Plus, RAs and CAs do continuous room checks to ensure the safety of the student body, and if you don't get caught, watch out—someone might report you.
