3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is a lot of peer pressure from different groups of people to drink alcohol.

Drug Safety: Based on the people I hang around, not a lot of them get drunk on the weekdays and if they do drink/do drugs they're smart about it, so that they aren't incapacitated the next day. And they make sure that they can still function in class.

Drug Safety: Drinking and drugs are pretty prevalent but no one judges you for not partaking in any of it.

Drug Safety: People of course get loud with alcohol and Austin being a liberal place, marijuana is abundant but it is not something you see on the daily or be bothered with

Drug Safety: The Greek Life is very big on UT campus. Every weekend West Campus (where the frat houses are located) are spilling over with drunk kids stumbling off to their next party. Weed isn't hard to find either. It's Austin. You could ask a homeless guy and he'd know where to find it.

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.
