Drug Safety

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol visibility is not high on campus and neither is peer pressure. Policy enforcement is high and many people know that.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Lots of people drink and smoke, but that's usually the extent of it. If you want the harder stuff, you can probably find a way to get it, but most people stay out of it. Peer pressure won't affect you if you're hanging out with the right crowd.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: If you pursue drugs than it's super easy to find them, especially weed, alcohol, and xans. Those are like the most popular, but truthfully whatever drug you want you can find. Just make friends.

If you're not pursuing drugs than it's super easy to not know where to find them at all. Kent State is really a "you choose what experience you want" type campus.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have not seen many drugs taking place on campus. I am not involved in that crowd and the campus surely does have drugs but it is not horrible.

Drug Safety: I would say it's decent. A lot of people feel the need to party and have fun while they are young. Most drinking and getting messed up in college did the same thing in high school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is a drug scene at Kent. However, such knowledge can easily be obtained through reason and not through experience. The drug scene is not very visible––especially on campus. One is most likely to encounter it at off-campus parties, but alcohol is far more prevalent. As far as pressure to drink and use drugs goes, whether or not students experience it rests mainly on the people with which they choose to spend their time. Neither drugs nor alcohol are absolutely essential to having a full social life, and partying can be done responsibly.

Partying in the dorms is a separate issue. Each hall is patrolled nightly by yellow-shirted security guards, and the discovery of substance abuse in a dormitory will have definite consequences, as these guards don't hesitate to involve the local police. In the dorms, smoking is less prevalent than drinking due to its detectable aroma and the presence of sensitive smoke detectors. Those students who don't keep the noise level in check are the most likely to get caught. The policies in place are enforced, but students do risk drinking in the dorms. One will likely find at Kent what he or she could expect to find on most college campuses. While present, alcohol and other drugs are entirely avoidable; the degree to which a student becomes involved with them depends on a student’s desires.
