One thing’s for sure: There isn’t any social pressure to do drugs at Tufts. As a matter of fact, students here could very well go their entire college career without seeing anything more than alcohol and cigarettes. However, this isn’t to say that Tufts University is a modern-day Pleasantville, either. Generally, where there is smoking and drinking, marijuana isn’t far away. Tthere are also a few rich fraternity boys here and there that are known for their coke habits.
Overall, though, there aren’t a lot of chain smokers or coke users on campus, though alcohol and marijuana are somewhat prevalent. The average Tufts student will probably drink on weekends and smoke from time to time, but as for the drug scene, there is virtually nothing to worry about. There’s no need to use anything to fit in. In fact, the crowds that use illegal substances are mostly isolated from the rest of the student body.
