5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is no big drug addiction at clarksville. There is a bit of a drinking problem but that it.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Small School So Everything Gets Around – It's a very small school so things get around pretty fast, so if there is a party that might be going on the school does an event that night so students might decide to go to that than the party. Also it is a dry county so one would have to drive an hour or so to get what they might need. This school was put in a good place. Don't get me wrong it has it ups and downs but there's a lot going on at school then to be at a party.

Drug Safety: Drugs and Such – Drugs at this school are not hard to find, especially with such a little community and word gets around easily. Also alcohol is harder to get due to the driving you must do to get it. There is no peer pressure and the policy is strictly enforced.

Drug Safety: Ozarks is a dry campus within a dry community, but students always find a way to drink. There is at least one off-campus party that involves alcohol and possibly smoking drugs every two weeks. In my past four years at this school I've had several people inform me that they know of students, even students with leadership positions, that drink in their dorm room.
There is a zero tolerancy policy concerning the use of drugs and alcohol on campus, and those students who have been caught have been addequately disciplined.

The University of the Ozarks is located in Johnson County, which is a dry county. No alcohol is within Clarksville, but there is access to it in surrounding towns. Of course, the University is against alcohol and drugs, but students can always find a way to still participate in these activities. Even though there are people 21-and-up, alcohol is still prohibited from the University. Unlike alcohol activity, the drug activity is not a prominent part of campus life. None of the alcohol and drug use is noticeable to the majority of students. However, peer pressure is visible, even at college. Of course, students will give in to temptation, but very few people take their illegal consumption out of control. As long as students do not publicly display their alcohol and drug consumption, there shouldn't be any problems.

If people are caught using illegal substances publicly on school grounds, there is a large fine administered to those involved. Other penalties include being asked to leave the University or possibly put in jail. The University takes the alcohol and drug violations very seriously. The Student Life Office does an effective job of maintaining the illegal acts on campus the best they can.
