2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Every weekend, it's more than expected that you will find drunk college students wandering around and you can expect that many students during the week are high on prescription drugs.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The drug scene is to a minimum but the location of campus makes the drinking scene increased

Drug Safety: The alcohol scene is everywhere. Since campus is small, there isn't a high risk of driving drunk

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are definitely people who do drugs at this school, but then again so did Steve Jobs and Jordan Belfort.

Drug Safety: Its no secret Miami is a party school . Can be difficult to make friends if you don't at least go out.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

As with any other college campus, Miami University does have a drug scene. However, because the school is so big, it is easy to avoid it if it isn’t something you are interested in. Marijuana is the most prevalent drug on campus, but cocaine usage is also common among certain Greek houses. However, the students who use cocaine usually keep it hidden and don't do it that often.

The entire drug scene here is mainly done behind closed doors, except for the Miami students’ current addiction to Adderall. It is very common for a Miami student to purchase Adderall or Concerta from a friend who has a prescription for it. This drug is used on campus as a study aid rather than to go out with. However, when it comes to the drug scene, the most popular choice at Miami has always been and will always be alcohol.
