4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is not peer pressure from people to partake in substances that you do not want to. Drug use is not out in the open but it is on campus, as it is every college.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs are definitely there for people that are interested, but they don't dominate the social scene.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs are not a problem at Millsaps, however, they are not hard to come by if one feels the need to experiment.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinking Is Prevalent.. Drinking is an inevitable part of college life. Basically, any time fraternities throw parties, you will see alcohol or the effects of it. Students are good about keeping it under the radar. Policy enforcement is a bit lax however security guards are always out patrolling the campus to make sure no one gets hurt.
As for other drugs, all I've even heard about on campus is marijuana, but even that is scarce.

Niche User

Drug Safety: Most students use some substances, whether it be alcohol or some marijuana, to blow off some steam. I can only imagine about five students on campus that don't. At the same time, I doubt very many students are going to end up in, y'know, a rehab center. But then I'm not a big believer in the slippery slope theory.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The drug scene is probably the most predictable aspect of Mississippi. The state, the community, and the campus is conservative. Most students have been drinking alcohol since their early high school careers, and it’s easily available on campus at frat parties or from upperclassmen that have already turned 21. Marijuana is, predictably, considered a marginal drug. A majority of students have used it but frown on it somewhat disapprovingly and don’t make a habit of it. Drug users find little resistance on campus from security.

Freshman year is notorious: Midnight fire alarms, destructive behavior, and borderline criminal activity will be a matter of home life for young students. It is probably fair to say that drug use is also heavy. For the most part, though, that use is purged, or at least the users are, by the time you get to the south side. When away from campus, you may be subject to dorm room searches targeting illegal drugs, so if you’re going to use drugs, at least make sure that you’re careful about it.
