3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I personally do not partake in drugs, so I do not surround myself with people who do, or put myself in that environment. As for alcohol visibility, students can find parties if they want to, but can also have a great social life without having to involve themselves with alcohol or drugs.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Rules are enforced highly in certain areas of our campus. Especially the Dorms because you are not allowed to have alcohol if you are under 21 in the dorms. Most parties end up being shut down also by cops by the end of the night.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I'm not sure of the questions meaning.... Drug use and alcohol consumption is relevant, but I wouldn't say it was worse than any other public university.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There's a lot of Weed off campus

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: They teach us to drink responsibly and safely. I understand that, I don't drink at all or party but I've been the designated driver for friends. And they have programs that will come pick you up so you don't drink and drive.

At Western, there is not a lot of drug use, other than marijuana. Typically, most students will drink more than they will use drugs. In fact, people who do anything harder than marijuana are very rare. The amount of marijuana use throughout the University is spread out among groups; however, it is not uncommon to see someone smoking a joint near a party.

If you do not like drug use, avoiding the types of people who do these drugs is possible. There are so many students at the University that picking the types of people you like to hang out with is easy.
