2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's definitely an alcohol-driven campus and no one has treated differently because I don't drink but there's no doubt that I've had to seek out more laid back friends because a good number of students drink on campus.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: What's great about OU is that a good amount of students drink so if you want to, you can. Many students do not drink though, so it really is whatever suits you.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: For the most part, people are fairly safe when using substances.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I personally don't do drugs, alcohol, or smoking but I still go out and have a great time. Most of the time, the parties won't get too out of hand, and drugs are used much less than alcohol.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Don't spend a lot of time around the campus

The perceived presence of drugs on campus is highly dependent on the particular student. If a student seeks to use drugs recreationally, they can find others with similar interests. If a student does not seek out drugs, there is very little pressure for them to do so. Overall, drugs are not a part of campus life. However, alcohol is definitely seen as part of the football season tradition and in the frequent parties for OU students off campus. The University is very concerned about the major health threats that both drugs and alcohol pose to the students who choose to use them. Underage drinking is taken very seriously, and students who are found to have alcohol on campus are punished by both the University and local law enforcement. The same standards apply to possession of illegal drugs.
