3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: A lot of people do drugs on their own time and with friends, but that doesn't mean everyone does, and it isn't really pressured to. Tons of people smoke weed on the bluff at night, or just in their rooms. Not supposed to drink if you are underage, but pretty much everyone does anyway. Just try not to get caught. Adderall and Ritalin are huge, especially during finals.

Drug Safety: Almost everyone drinks, and if you don't then you will feel left out. If you don't like to party, you probably won't like it here.

Drug Safety: The school is great for students who have their own opinions and don't necessarily see a need to do any form of drugs. Although it does occur here at the school, students can still find themselves engaged with others who do not choose to do such drugs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

College campuses are typically overflowing with alcohol and drug problems, and LMU is no different. Most students drink, and some students drink heavily. It was no surprise to many students when the annual Charter Ball was canceled after numerous alcohol-related emergencies. Even students over 21 need to exercise caution when drinking because students caught drinking around minors will end up being hauled into Judicial Affairs. On the positive side, the University does host some events with alcohol for seniors who are over 21.

Drugs are not a significant problem when compared to alcohol. It seems like everyone knows someone who smokes pot in the dorms, and public safety usually responds to calls about student drug use every few weeks. However, it is very unlikely that you will find a student who openly admits to smoking marijuana or trying other illegal drugs because of the severe penalties from the University. Students looking to satisfy a drug habit will find that scene on campus, but it may take some digging around. If you want to party hard and drink until you pass it out, then you'll find a party, on or off campus, that keeps the beer flowing. However, students who are not interested in the drug scene can avoid it easily.
