Drug Safety

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs are not present everywhere but you know some people are doing them.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Emory requires its students to do programs that talk about drug and alcohol safety, but it's not really effective. However, people are, for the most part, safe and responsible with drugs and alcohol, and Emory has plenty of resources for when people do go overboard.

Drug Safety: There isn't much peer pressure to use drugs or alcohol. If you want to party, they will be available, but you can have a social life without using.

Drug Safety: A lot of people do drink but it isn't bad if you don't. I know there are people who go to parties but don't drink and they still manage to have fun and no one judges them for it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is certainly a fair amount of drug use at Emory, but those who use drugs other than marijuana and alcohol are very quiet and stealthy about doing so. Students are rarely pressured to do any drugs, and this a definitely a good thing, especially for new students.

Marijuana use is the most common on campus, as it likely is on many other college campuses. ADD medication or study drugs such as Adderall and Concerta are also used quite frequently as study aids. Many students pay a pretty penny for these pills, but to some this is just pocket change, another variable that facilitates the "drug scene" on campus. Emory in no way has a drug problem on campus, but there is a fair number of students who frequently use and abuse various drugs. Abuse is a relative term, though, because if any student were unable to keep up with his or her school work because of their drug use, they would fall behind and be unable to attend Emory.
