4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Nobody forces you, but it's there

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I myself have not felt pressured into using any, but a friend of mine who lives with a few seniors has been pressured into drinking with them. It really depends on the kind of people you end up being around, most people are fine though.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: The campus have cracked down on underage drinking.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is not really a huge drug life at Temple University; many students are too worried about getting in trouble to risk it. Temple doesn’t play when people break the rules and bring drugs on campus. Students who have been stupid enough to do so in the past no longer attend the University. There are signs posted in residence halls, along with emails that are sent out to students in the beginning of each semester, that stress that Temple doesn’t allow drugs on campus (especially in the residence halls), so there is no excuse for not being aware of the rules. Temple gives each student fair warnings about acceptable behavior, and if you cross the line, you have to be prepared to deal with the repercussions of those actions.

All of this being said, there are ways to get drugs from students in off-campus housing. Alcohol is a really big hit on campus. Most of the parties that are put on by campus students have alcohol, and there are a lot of places both in North Philadelphia and Center City to buy alcohol. Even if you are 21, you are still not allowed to have alcohol on campus, so that is something to keep in mind. But like any system, there are ways to get around it.
