Drug Safety: Seen or heard of people doing cocaine and smoking marijuana. Plus theres places to drink every day of the week. A definite textbook party school.

Drug Safety: I mean it's a party school. If your plan is to not drink ever at all then you have to come to terms with the fact that there isn't a whole lot to do in Oxford. We're surrounded by cornfields for miles we drink to kill the boredom.

Drug Safety: A lot of students choose to use drugs, ESPECIALLY ALCOHOL. Almost every student goes out almost every weekend.

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.
