3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Mostly, the students are safe, but there is definitely pressure to drink.

Drug Safety: The drug scene at my school is pretty noticeable you can easily tell who does drugs and who doesn't. Most of the time kids are falling into peer pressure due to others saying its okay, it won't affect you.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: UCF encourages students to do things the "Knight Way" by being responsible when in those type of environments. There are strict policies and enforcement that comes along with being enrolled at the second largest University in the nation.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: It is sad, as a college student, that I have to deal with issues such as this. I am trying to attain an education and am bombarded with drugs, alcohol and sex.

UCF students study hard and play hard. However, the drug scene on campus doesn't compare to the one around campus and in Orlando. Marijuana is used by many students. Pills, such as Adderall, are also popular among students to assist them in concentration while studying.

The school offers many counseling and educational programs about both drugs and alcohol. The Counseling Center can give advice and support if you're having a problem with drugs. REACH Peer Education has brochures and pamphlets on any drug you could possibly want to learn about. UCF provides a wealth of knowledge and advice on drugs and alcohol, giving its students the best information to make intelligent and proper decisions.
