3 College Senior

Drug Safety: I find it to be OK to try something once not too much.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I personally do not take part in the drug scene in school, but I know a lot of people that do and they've never been caught or reprimanded.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: alcohol and drugs are very popular around the campus and not much is done by the school to prevent or control it

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Policy enforcement is not that much and alcohol is easily accessible.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: This is a relative question, but if someone is looking to gain access to large amounts of alcohol and hard drugs, this is definitely the place for them-which is a little terrifying. It sometimes shakes me to know how easily I could obtain any and all of the substances mentioned above.

The drug scene at Syracuse University is more than likely no different than at most schools across the United States. If a random poll of students were taken, a few would be serious drug users, some would be occasional users, and many would not use drugs at all. Marijuana is clearly the drug of choice for students, excluding alcohol, and it can be easily found on campus. Even if an individual is not an avid user, more than likely, he or she knows someone who sells weed.

At almost every party a student will attend, some party-goers will be smoking pot. It will be tough for a student to avoid being around marijuana for all four years at SU, but if the person truly doesn't want to use, it will be easy to find ways to evade it. The Options program in the Health Center is excellent for students who feel they have a problem and would like a private counselor to help them. The staff is knowledgeable and caring.
