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.
