Drug Safety: The school has a no fault policy which is great and I think it helps to keep people from getting in serious trouble medically because of alcohol poisoning. They do try their best to keep drugs at bay but there is only so much you can do.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Not many people see drugs and take action.

When it comes to the U of L drug scene, there just isn't much to talk about. You're not going to see anyone walking around campus passing out cocaine or smoking pot or anything like that. That's not to say that people around here don't do drugs, but students say they rarely hear about it. Drugs are used mostly at parties and in people's apartments, and if you don't want to use them, you won't be pressured to do so. U of L students who do drugs usually hang out together in their own little groups, and there isn't much interaction with non-users anyway.

The most prevalent drug on campus would probably be marijuana. Occasionally, you'll also run into students using someone else's prescription, such as Adderall, to get through a long study session, but this is also rare. However, most students do drink—you don’t have to drink to have a social life here, but you will almost definitely see it. It’s uncommon to hear about students getting caught with drugs on campus, but the housing department takes it very seriously when they’re found in the dorms. Overall, the drug scene here is pretty small—with so many other things to do, there isn't much of a market.
