Drug Safety: it is probably as average as any college

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't do drugs so I don't know what the scene is like on campus. There was some serious concerns about drug possession/drinking in the dorms throughout my first year.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I think its pretty typical for a college campus. Some students like to drink, but it is never forced on another student.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is clear consumption at my school, but not at an outlandish rate or in a manner that makes others feel uncomfortable.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug usage isn't very visible. A lot of students have off-campus apartments, so if you want to drink or smoke weed then you just go to someone's apartment. No pressures you to do anything you don't want to do, I can honestly say that's the most mature thing about Loyola students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Drugs, like just about everything else you could possibly want, are abundantly available in Chicago. Not many students at Loyola resort to hardcore drug use, but there are certainly those that do. Although few people will admit it, it sometimes seems like the majority of undergraduates smoke marijuana at least every now and then, if not on a regular basis. Even if they avoid the green weed, a large percentage of Loyolans spend their non-study hours indulging heavily in alcohol. Overall, drug use is not prevalent, however, and students generally do not feel pressured to do drugs. No one at Loyola will shove a joint in your face and demand that you smoke it. If you choose to do drugs, it will be of your own volition. Just remember, drugs are bad, okay?

Although they tend to welcome “soft” drugs such as alcohol, nicotine, and pot, Loyola students stay away from the harder stuff. You will find few cokeheads or heroin addicts on campus. Most people who hear about the use of this sort of drug by one of their friends are utterly disappointed. Students like to have a good time, but they do not want to see their friends become the victims of rampant drug use.
