Move over Cheech and Chong, hello SRU. Marijuana is, by far, the most prevalent drug on campus. There is also rumor of harder drugs, such as cocaine, floating around and taking hold of a small minority of the student body. However, it is safe to say that the majority of Slippery Rock students have chosen a drug-free lifestyle and other avenues of entertainment. No matter what university you choose, there will always be a population of drug users.
Though drugs are available and easy to access, the Slippery Rock drug scene is rather tame compared to many other local universities. The majority of students who do decide to participate in the drug scene usually find out the hard way that drugs and academics don’t mix. If you are a user and realize that you have a problem, there is help for you here. Simply visit Old Main’s Counseling Center or McLaughlin Health Center for a confidential appointment and the first step towards recovery.
