Drug Safety

Drug Safety: I never have really felt any peer pressure, and you can kind of just decide how much you want to partake. The campus itself is dry, which means if you don't want to drink at all, you're probably in good company, but there's lots of drinking off-campus.

Drug Safety: Baylor is a conservative, Baptist school. There's a zero tolerance policy for drinking on campus, and there are only a few spots off campus that host parties with alcohol. This is something I'm very proud of!

Drug Safety: A lot of people come to college and go wild.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Due to the fact that Baylor is a "Dry campus" this means that there are absolutely NO drugs and alcohol allowed on campus. Those that do not follow these rules usually are handled by judicial affairs.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is super easy to get, just go into any fraternity party. If you're an underage looking to drink, you will have no problem finding that. My underage friend who looks older has gone into several Waco gas stations and bought a lot of alcohol and not been ID-ed. Just don't be dumb and drink in the dorms or else you could get expelled. For those of you who don't drink, many many people on campus don't drink either. There are all sorts of clubs (fraternity and sorority like too) that you can join that are alcohol free. Baylor also has on-campus events all the time that aren't too bad. ZZZ is similar to a fraternity and hold many parties that are all alcohol free and are usually a good time (and this is coming from someone who drinks). KXA is a christian sorority on campus that is obviously alcohol and drug free and those are just two of the many options. I'm in a panhellenic sorority and many of the girls in my sorority don't drink and still have a wonderful time. Many do drink too. So whatever you want, you will definitely be able to find. The most common drugs at Baylor are adderall, vivance, and weed. Many students take adderall, but this is true of most college campuses. Because many people have a lot of money, drugs are not too hard to come by if you look. If you aren't actively looking for drugs however, you won't notice a drug scene at all. Peer pressure is not strong at Baylor because it is a Christian school and many people live by strong Christian values. Baylor takes drugs and alcohol very seriously though so don't get caught.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The drug scene is as big as you make it. Unless you're feeling brave or know certain people, it's difficult to go around looking to buy drugs. The most harmful (but also the most popular) illegal drug is marijuana, which is something that you'll find more frat boys than Collins girls doing. Students with prescriptions to drugs like Adderall will sometimes sell their pills, but most students take it to keep them awake for long hours of intense concentration and last-minute cramming. This usually backfires and is a bad idea.

There really isn’t pressure to do any kind of drug. Alcohol is by far the most widely accepted, but even then it is really only with upperclassmen or at frat parties. Alcohol isn’t that easy to avoid because everyone is looking for something to do, and it always seems to involve drinking. Exceptions are often made, though, by dry frats who throw parties, on- or off-campus with nothing more than Dr Pepper. The biggest thing is that drugs will only be as visible and involved in your life as you let them. The Baptist heritage of the school does not mean that drugs do not exist. After all, this is college, so drugs can be found if you really want them. But the religious affiliation of the University does provide support for students who are not interested in doing drugs or drinking.
