Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Drugs on campus are present, but not excessive. Certainly, alcohol and marijuana are the most used—and sometimes abused—drugs on campus. However, they are the norm, and students do not really make a big deal of it. Furthermore, there is no real drug trade on campus in regard to hardcore drugs, such as cocaine—though they are used in small numbers. As a result, there is no real pressure to do drugs—it is an individual's choice whether to participate.

While drugs are easily accessible and ever-present on campus, the University Police does not turn a blind eye. The police are quick to respond to any visible drunken incident or drug presence, especially if the student is underage, so it is not uncommon to hear stories of students running from houses to prevent being arrested by incoming officers. Also, though marijuana and alcohol often slip through police patrols, the other "hardcore" drugs, if at all found, are quick to be eliminated. Ultimately, drugs are an everyday reality, but not a major concern here.
