3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Some students do participate in the drug scene and the most popular two would marijuana and alcohol. I am not usually too bothered by these drugs because I do not party and live on a nursing based floor. The school is safe though and public safety gets involved with drug situations that are a threat to one's life.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Many of my friends drink and smoke marijuana. It doesn't get much past that. It is hard to get sometimes. Peer pressure isn't really a factor, because people like to do these things on their own. If you are caught then you will be in trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't know if I'm rating it to be that drugs are great and all over campus or that the security is great because it's tight lol. It's a conservative town, not to say that drinking doesn't happen, but it's at a minimal. If you look for the partiers I'm sure you'll find them, but it won't be a problem if you're trying to avoid that scene.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: UCCS is pretty strict about drugs. I don't really have a social life there, so it's hard for me to say, but for the most part I don't see any obvious usage

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Nobody on campus doesn't use drugs. Peer pressure is never used to use any alcohol or drugs. Policy is very strict that alcohol used is only for the people that are of age to drink.
