3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Alcohol is easily the most common, nearly everyone drinks and it is pretty easy to get a hold of for minors. Weed is a huge part of any college and ecstasy is huge at the yearly concerts but that's the extent for the most part of the drug scene at UNH.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: I am not a par tof the drug or alcohol scene. I do not know much about how abundant they are or how easy they are to access. But I know LOTS of people who drink and if you don't, well you do NOT fit in with most...

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Most students say they see marijuana use happening on a regular basis, but although drug use is basically out in the open, it’s rarely a hassle. Some students aren’t exposed to any drug use at all. The general consensus is that drugs are basically there if you want them to be.

At UNH, the harder drugs are much less prevalent, and very few cases have been cited. Overall, UNH is a fairly harmless school when it comes to drugs, but ultimately the choice is up to the students.
