5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A few students use light drugs like Marijuana, but no one is using hardcore drugs. No one goes to class high or drunk.

Drug Safety: The fact that four student-athletes from the football team were arrested recently shows you that a drug problem exists. This occurred after two student-athletes from the 2013 and 2014 football teams were arrested and caught with marijuana possession. One wonders whether the drug policies are equally enforced depending on whether or not you are on the football team. Alcohol consumption is a big problem on football weekends. I have personally seen whiskey and beer bottles and cans left inside Jordan-Hare Stadium.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I live off campus, and have not paid attention to what other students are doing.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You drink or you don't. No one pressures you. It's only in your mind. Alcohol is prevalent but not corrosive.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Like any other college, Auburn does have to deal with the presence of drugs. Fortunately, if you're not looking for that kind of recreation, then you probably won't come across it.

Most students cite alcohol and marijuana among the most commonly used drugs at Auburn. Caffeine and amphetamine drugs, like Ritalin and Adderall, are also common and associated with concentration. Use of cocaine is occasionally present. If you choose to take that route, then you do so at your own risk. If not, then you probably won't come in contact with many drugs. If you find yourself in an uncomfortable situation, then don't hesitate to leave or contact someone for help, if necessary.
