College Senior

Drug Safety: I haven't noticed because I am not on campus at night and have not had anyone say anything to me about it

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If you want to, you can. If not, no worries.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Every public college will have a drinking scene. Western isn't any different but as for my experience there isn't peer pressure just people looking to have a fun, safe time with there friends.

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.
