4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drug & Alcohol visibility: usually smell weed especially in certain dorms & alcohol bottles in the windows

Usage: ranges from never to multiple times a day

Peer Pressure: don't really believe in it

Policy Enforcement: extreme on campus compared to off-campus housing

Drug Safety: Alcohol is extremely present. And drugs are there, but its not overwhelming, and you won't be pressured to do them if it's not your thing.

Drug Safety: As long as your smart about it, its easy to get away with drinking underage in dorms (ex. not having a thousand people in a room with blasting music, or keeping your door closed when alcohol is out)

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Frat parties are abundant almost every weekend so if drinking and partying is what you want to do, Binghamton has that covered. If not, that's fine too. But most students do partake in the party scene to at least a certain extent.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A ton of people smoke weed in the nature preserve which I think is absolutely disgusting, to be honest with you. Also, the only activities on campus or around it involve alcohol. BOTTOM LINE. There is NOTHING for you to do if you don't drink. Enjoy the frat parties - creepy, disgusting guys galore. It's always fun to hear the ambulance outside your dorm room on a Thursday night, too.

Students at Binghamton are not regularly exposed to any major drugs, and the most common ones are alcohol and marijuana. But no matter what drug you are into, you can probably find somebody to either buy from or sell to at Binghamton. As students say, it is not that drugs are a big deal on campus—but it is a big school, and there is a niche for just about any taste. Students who get caught drinking underage or using illegal substances will, for minor offenses, be issued a ticket. More severe offenses may involve University administrative and disciplinary action.

Despite prevalent stereotypes about different communities being known for their drug scenes, rest assured that drug use is not highly visible anywhere on campus. Like any college, Binghamton has its share of drug use and experimentation. However, peer pressure is almost nonexistent, so steering clear of the scene altogether is just as easy if you don't want to be involved.
