Drug Safety

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You do not really see a lot of drug use on campus but alcohol has been a problem. I think it can be easy to fall into peer pressure but with drinking, personally, I just tell people I do not drink and they tend to leave me alone.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I hardly see/know of much drug use that goes on at campus. I would say that this campus is pretty much drug-free.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Because most people live off campus, many people will avoid drinking or doing drugs because they know that they will have to drive all the way home. Even if they do anything, housing is very lenient on having guests stay in your dorm. They even allow students to have alcohol in Riverwalk as long as everyone staying in the room is over 21.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's a college campus, what do you expect out of a bunch of 18-24 year olds

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The most popular drug on campus is probably the same one on most other campuses—caffeine. There just isn’t a huge illegal drug scene at IUPUI. Underage drinking is the one thing that might fit into this category, but most students that live on campus do not get very involved with drugs. There are surely some off-campus parties and gatherings where students can find drugs, but it would probably take a bit of effort on a student’s part to get some marijuana or any other narcotics.

IUPUI has recently taken on a fairly aggressive smoke-free campaign. Smoking cigarettes is not allowed within 30 feet of any building doorway. There are special ashtrays located in designated areas for students that choose to smoke. Although the new rules are not always abided, the message is very clear. There are also a number of smoking cessation programs for students that want to quit smoking.
