3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I personally do not notice drug use but I know it's there.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene is very high on campus and often talked about among eachother

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I constantly see my peers drinking, and it's not just visible drinking, but underage drinking being posted on social media profiles. The kids are honestly out of control. I don't drink to the extent that most of my peers do, and I never will. I see how they treat people who don't drink (like me) and I never want to result to be that kind of person. There needs to be more control. I'd prefer it be the self control of students, but if authorities need to step in, I'm not complaining.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Lots of people drink, a good amount of people smoke weed. I have friends that don't drink or smoke, and they have no problem.

The most prevalent drugs on the UT campus are, without a doubt, alcohol and marijuana. However, if someone wants any type of drug, it is likely that he or she will be able to get it fairly easily. Most anyone knows someone, or knows someone who knows someone, who can get their hands on cocaine or any type of pill that they want-ecstasy, speed and the like. Heroin, however, does not seem to be that prevalent. Most students at UT drink, no matter what their age, and getting a hold of alcohol if you are underage is fairly simple.

Most students at UT consider weed not to be an illegal drug, but put it in the same category with alcohol. Whether you are a pot smoker or not, you will not feel pressure to do so at UT. Students here respect one another and tend not to violate another students personal space. So overall, drugs are available if you want them.
