Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

What we all learned throughout middle and high school is to "Say no to drugs,” but what about college? Of course, nearly all universities have some presence or problems with drugs, but fortunately A&M isn't really one of them. A&M students agree that the most abused substance on campus is alcohol, mainly due to all the bars and because the University does not have a dry campus. It is still possible to gain access to other drugs, but they're less popular. Of all the illegal drugs on campus, marijuana is the most popular, but even that isn’t very common.

College Station is a small city with little influence from the drug culture. It’s mostly a clean town, which gives students a better chance to stay in school and pass their classes. Remember why you’re in college—to get that diploma—and keep your eye on your goal. This will help you to avoid getting caught up in drinking and partying, which can take its toll just as much as harder drugs. College is all about choices and balance, and making the right choices will pay off in the end.
