Drug Safety: The drug scene on Savannah State campus is average because the campus police are always looking to see if someone is drinking underage or smoking on campus. I dont think the drug and alcohol use is visible because the students know what kind of campus they live on. I also do not believe that there is a lot of peer pressure because you don't do something that others do then you want be judge or forced to do it.

Drug Safety: The drug scene isnt any different fromany other. We have close access to alcohol and everyone partakes in a cup or two at parties. It's not bad at all.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

On Savannah State's campus, drugs and alcohol are mostly nonexistent, and if they are used, students are pretty discreet about it. As far as campus life is concerned, everyone is working to succeed; you don't just see people walking around campus smoking. You can only find something if you're looking for it; therefore, students who decide to obtain drugs and alcohol are ultimately in search of it. Students are not peer pressured to do anything they do not want to do, considering that students are all adults. No one is trying to fit in; everyone is simply trying to be themselves.

Savannah State is a dry campus, meaning whether you are 21 years of age or not, no alcohol is allowed. Using alcohol and drugs can result in a $500 fine and a possible suspension from the University. Not to mention, there is a K-9 police dog that sniffs drugs. Plus, RAs and CAs do continuous room checks to ensure the safety of the student body, and if you don't get caught, watch out—someone might report you.
