Drug Safety: It is not soo visible. Mostly on the drag.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: UT Austin is a known party school. They're party scene must be pretty bad if they're making it required for students to do Alcohol Edu, a educational and interactive learning module where you learn about the effects of alcohol, in the duration of their freshman year.

Drug Safety: One thing I can't stand is potheads, and they seem to be somewhat rare at UT, or maybe just because I don't notice. They do exist though, but drinking is far more common. Almost everyone I know drinks, and who can blame them with the party and nightlife options we have available? Drinking and driving is a bit of a problem though but initiatives like the e-Bus and Safe Ride Home are helping a lot.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: i never experienced any drug scene.

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.
