3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You definitely see the presence of alcohol or drugs on campus but no one really judges you if you choose to partake or not partake in it. They recently made efforts to make the campus a smoke free environment. If you drink off campus but get sick back on campus you're protected from getting in trouble; the RAs or public safety won't write you up.

Drug Safety: A college campus is a college campus. If you want any sort of drug you'll find it if you go looking.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are bound to be drugs on any college campus, so I don't believe Chapman is any different. In regards to other universities, there is probably a way smaller chance drugs will be used as frequently. Yes, the presence of drugs is there, however I feel that the students of this university are more morally strict and do not choose drugs over their school studies.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There's alcohol and drugs available like any other college, but it's not a big issue. Students respect others and their decisions, and there is average enforcement.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Chapman students love to drink alcohol. Other drugs, like marijuana, are almost nonexistent, but alcohol establishes its presence Thursday through Saturday nights and at large campus events. Students who are 21 or older swarm to the local bars on Thursday nights and make routine trips to Las Vegas. Underage students go to fraternity parties and house parties, where there is always free alcohol. Although Chapman says it's a dry campus, the majority of students drink in their dorms. It's very easy to get away with drinking on campus, as long as students don't make too much noise. If a student does get caught drinking alcohol, he or she usually has to write an essay relating to alcohol education.

There is a fair amount of pressure placed on students to drink. There is alcohol at every party, and almost everyone is drunk when they go out, except the handful of designated drivers. Campus-wide events, like Undie Run or Homecoming, turn into an excuse to get drunk. Rather than severely punishing students after they drink, Chapman tries to educate students before they start. For a couple years, the University required the incoming freshman class to complete AlcoholEDU, an online alcohol education program. Although AlcoholEDU isn’t required now, Chapman still promotes alcohol and substance awareness on campus.
