4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is some underage drinking and sometimes you can smell the use of marijuana, but it is not very noticeable and there I've never been around people that pressure me into doing something that I don't want to do.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: RAs try and control it but a lot of people drink underage. Its not a dry campus so those of age also drink in the dorms and around campus. Marijuana use isn't too big at the school, mainly alcohol. Many people are smart about drinking and walk to the bars

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I rarely see drugs on our campus. There is occasionally alcohol visible.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Our school is not a big place for huge drug use although it happens recreationally like at most schools. The drinking scene is very prevelant though and happens every week.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are two bars in town but the campus SAC offers plenty of fun activities over the weekend so if drinking is not for you there are plenty of things to do other than drink.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Of all the things found at Luther, drugs aren’t one of them. Students would rather get high on life than high on anything else. The college drug use that you see depicted in movies, television, and other popular culture simply doesn’t exist at Luther. It could be the natural entertainment that Luther gives students through activities or students’ general enjoyment of drinking without drugs. In either case, drug use at Luther is not abundant, but that’s not to say it doesn’t exist at all. Sure, there are students who enjoy marijuana every now and again. Quite a few of them are caught, simply because Luther’s cops have a way of finding out that sort of thing. There are also students who enjoy clove cigarettes, cigars, and other types of smoke. But if you are looking for stronger drugs than sticky icky, you will have to travel to one of the larger cities north or south to find it.

Of course, alcohol and caffeine are problems among a lot of students. Energy drinks are also becoming more popular among students, especially during finals week. Some students do abuse alcohol to excess, and it seems every few weeks, an ambulance will be called for an overdose. However, these events are few and far between, and certainly are not reflective of the traditional usage on campus. Luther, for a college campus in the 21st century, is about as clean as you could hope for.
