Liquor is the true king when it comes to prevalent drugs that are supposed to be banned on campus. Liquor is not a hard thing to obtain at Clark Atlanta University because other students are so willing to lend a helping hand. Students usually don't like going to the club totally sober, so a lot of the underage students get some of the upperclassmen on campus to purchase liquor for them from the local corner store. Due to the administration's strict policies, it is not advised to bring any type of liquor onto campus. Regardless of policy, it is not very difficult to sneak a bottle onto campus grounds.
Drug use is not a huge problem here at Clark Atlanta University. Students who choose not to smoke marijuana are never pressured or put down for choosing to stay away from the drug. CAU will make a home for the student that chooses to participate in the weed crowd and the student who likes to stay sober. Clark Atlanta is definitely not a school for students that are into study drugs, prescription drugs, or cocaine. CAU has extremely rare cases of reports of study drugs or prescription drug usage, and even rarer are reports of cocaine or crack usage.
