Drug Safety: Most people drink for sure, but if you don't you won't be criticized for it or anything. For the most part, faculty/RAs are chill and just want you to be safe about it. Others can be overly strict. Seen people use drugs on campus before but I wouldn't say it's too abundant. Nothing different from the college norm.

Drug Safety: I don't partake in those kinds of activities, but from what I have been told and can see, drinking is a big problem at my school. There have been multiple cases of alcohol poisoning, and underage drinking is very prominent

College Freshman

Drug Safety: The focus isn't on drugs, the campus is a very positive atmosphere.

Drug Safety: I only hear occasionally of people using drugs; I don't really personally know anyone who does

Most TCU students do not consider drug use to be a major part of their life. Students who desire drugs, however, are able to find them. The most common drugs on campus are alcohol and marijuana. Hard drugs like cocaine and ecstasy
are less common, but they occasionally surface. A survey conducted by the Office of Alcohol and Drug Education found that marijuana use is common among TCU students, but still under the national average.

The drug scene at TCU is what students make of it. Those who do not wish to be involved rarely come in contact with drugs. Campus Police uphold strict guidelines for students who violate TCU's alcohol and drug policy, ensuring student safety and stability.
