Drug Safety

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: If you don't want to do drugs, don't do drugs. There is some peer pressure, but with good friends by your side you can feel comfortable saying no thanks to an offer and not giving in.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You dont need to get involve but its there

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are many students that drink or smoke marijuana, but they usually don't get caught by RA's or the campus police officers. However, if anyone suspects drug use or drinking, the campus police are called and they do an investigation. The policy enforcement at Rowan is strict as well, so if you get caught, you will pay the price.

Drug Safety: Several students were caught not long ago with a lot of drugs and several on campus housing buildings are known for drugs

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Thirsty Thursdays, F***ed Up Fridays, Savage Saturdays. The drinking on Rowan is pretty noticeable, most students can be seen stumbling back early on in the semester from parties. Most freshmen engage in underage drinking, and the RoPo(Rowan Police) are always out in the force Wednesday-Saturday Nights making sure students don't make poor decisions. There is a good amount of date rape that takes place at Rowan, and it's definitely a problem at the bigger Frat parties. However, after freshmen year, most respectable young gentlemen and ladies limit their goings to such places significantly and prefer to get inebriated with close friends in small gatherings, where the entrance fee isn't $1. A good amount of students are "trippy" and enjoy partaking in psychedelic experiences such as Shrooms, Acid, Molly, and the occassional Ketamine. There's also a large influx of research chemicals that pass as LSD, that can be found too if one knows the right people. And of course, like any other college campuses, Rowan University has a large stoner community. Almost as many people smoke weed as much as they drink, and in some social circles, cannabis is the preferred intoxicant of choice. Unfortunately Rowan has a terrible drug policy that kicks out or suspends students caught with or under the influence of marijuana or other drugs/paraphernalia. While at the same time handing out slaps on the wrist to those doing the same thing with Alcohol. Pretty annoying. Getting caught with weed or drugs on campus is a guarantee to losing housing THAT day, and a call to your parents.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are drugs on nearly every college campus across the county. Some people might say that Rowan is the exception, but don’t believe them, especially if they reek of a certain drug that is celebrated in “High Times” magazine. However, the students who do drugs on campus do a good job of hiding it because they’re not out in the open at all. It’s either that or the Rowan Police, often called “RoPo,” have been doing a good job of keeping Rowan somewhat drug-free. Either way, if you’re not into drugs, you probably won’t see them on campus, and peer pressure is not an issue.

With all that being said, it's not uncommon to see the occasional high student on campus. However, alcohol is way more popular—most Rowan students just enjoy drinking on the weekends rather than lighting up. Designer drugs and other eccentric habits are rare here.
