Drug Safety

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No drugs are visible. Campus Security is very good at stopping this.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is a very very small amount of students using drugs.

1 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: This school needs to lay back. They are way too uptight about no alcohol on campus. They basically want you to be imprisoned and have no fun.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Drugs are rare, but do exist on campus. Campus Safety is very strict about enforcing the no-alcohol/no-drug rules, so searching drugs out would really be the only way to find them. Therefore, peer pressure to do drugs is quite uncommon at Samford. Knowing your friends is important because even riding with someone who has drugs in their car can get you into trouble, too. 

Usually, the only public display of smoking consists of tobacco, which takes place at night or between classes. Even these cases are not very often, so either people are great at keeping their drug use a secret, or drugs are simply not a frequent practice among students.
