Drug Safety

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I rarely see people use drugs in school but you can tell people who have used it because of their actions or smell

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't take part in this 'scene' at school. Therefore, I wouldn't know what it's like. I'm aware that recently there had been a tragic hazing incident with a fraternity on campus, including drugs, but that's rather rare I believe.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Most of the students do drugs at school, but it is not visible. Many smoke cigarettes in the no smoking area, and many take adderall to study.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: You can't even smoke near campus so drugs are very far to consider.

Drug Safety: You're in the city so most of the drug/alcohol scenes happen off campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If there's one thing you won't find at Baruch, it's an established drug scene. As an urban commuter school, it has managed to escape the active drug and drinking scene that's visible on so many other campuses throughout the country, probably because Baruch doesn't have dorms that provide a private space to do drugs. This doesn't mean there isn't anyone at Baruch who does drugs—it's a large and diverse group of people, after all—but it's most likely a very small percentage of the student body. Overall, students seem to be much more concerned with cigarette smoke engulfing building entrances than they are about drugs.

The bottom line is that if any Baruch students are doing drugs, they are likely doing them off campus where they can get enough privacy and whatever else they need. Most students don't come here with the intention to party or use drugs—the atmosphere is all wrong wrong for that.
