3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I think that alcohol is very visible on campus, but drugs probably not as much. Students have pretty much unlimited access to alcohol from upperclassmen. The only drug problems that I have noticed are adderal and marijuana. Adderal is worse around finals week when people are trying to focus more on studying, and marijuana is present all the time but its not out in the open as much as adderal, I think people try to be more discrete.

Drug Safety: Im not sure if its just this campus or what but I do see a lot of drug and alcohol usage around campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Just as it is on many college campuses, drinking has a significant presence at WKU, too. Everyone knows that there are parties off campus (if you know where to look), and a lot of people choose to partake in that. Alcohol is not permitted in the residence halls, and though rooms are usually not searched, there can be very severe consequences if alcohol or drugs are found in the dorms. 

If drinking isn't your thing, you aren't alone. Many students choose the sober lifestyle and find other ways to entertain themselves on the weekends. Drugs are much less common. Though marijuana use is generally known to occur among certain circles, it's not very prevalent, and hard drug use is extremely rare.
