3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of students drink, but there isn't peer pressure to do so.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If you go to a party or concert on campus you will undoubtably see people drinking or passing around a joint. This doesn't mean that everyone partakes in it though and people do occasionally get caught.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Honestly I don't hear to much about drugs on school. The big thing of course is the tailgates for Nebraska Football. I would say alcohol is the most visible one and one talked about most.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Mostly everyone drinks but its not as bad as some schools that i have seen

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You will see kids smoking weed very rarely on campus because our security is very good and that is a good thing because the less drugs on campus the better.

For students with an itch to stretch the limits of their minds and the law, it seems that weed is the drug of choice. Students say that the UNL campus is pretty tame when it comes to drugs, but there are ways to find what you seek. According to students, more serious drugs such as ecstasy and crystal meth aren’t very prominent at UNL because neither a student’s wallet nor grades can afford them.

There’s an important difference between the drug scene in college and the drug scene in high school. In college, people do drugs because they want to and not because everybody else is doing it. You may not believe it yet, but students in college, or at least at UNL, will respect you more if you’re your own person than if you follow the crowd. So, when it’s your turn to take a hit, pass it on if you want because people won’t judge you any differently than before.
