Drug Safety: I have not really noticed anything out in the open on campus.

Drug Safety: Teen drinking is going to happen at pretty much any campus in America. It does happen here but I don't think it ever gets out of hand. Most of the people drinking are of legal age and pretty much every one who drinks stays at home or at someone else's home while doing it so there is very little risk for people getting into accidents and getting hurt. It seems to be under control and I have not heard of anyone doing any hard drugs around campus.

Drug Safety: although drug use in private quarters is known on campus, it is not anything that is visible in the open.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: UNT always has flyers out about alcohol use or drug use on campus. I haven't seen any kids doing drugs, or drinking on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's great, at least on campus, but when you go home and are with friends, that's when peer pressure comes into play. Most, if not all, students don't drink on campus and drink responsibly, even though Fry street (the party/bar street) is literally the next street north of UNT. I don't know about policy enforcement because I have never seen parties go out of hand, though the weekend is a slight different story.
