Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Drugs are definitely not a major factor at Georgia College and State University. It is very rare to even hear about drugs unless you fall into the “wrong” crowd. Drinking is more prevalent, just as in every other college town.

However, you will not feel peer pressure to drink. If you get caught drinking underage in the dorms, the campus police will decide your punishment, but if you get caught drinking underage in a bar downtown, by either campus or city police, you will probably receive a much harsher punishment.
