3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are very available but if you do not choose to partake in them nobody cares. Peer pressure varies from friend groups but most people do not care if you choose not to do it. Policy enforcement is strict if they catch you in the act but if not they don't really care.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Nobody really feels pressured to drink or smoke, but people do just to experiment since they're by themselves for the first time.

Drug Safety: Temple University has a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: For Temple, drug and alcohol visibility, usage and policy are very valued and promoted. Although there is peer pressure on drinking during events or parties, but that is normal for the social norm.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: The is barely any known drugs that are visible on campus. They thing that is visible is the bar on campus and they are very strict about letting under age students into the bar to drink.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is not really a huge drug life at Temple University; many students are too worried about getting in trouble to risk it. Temple doesn’t play when people break the rules and bring drugs on campus. Students who have been stupid enough to do so in the past no longer attend the University. There are signs posted in residence halls, along with emails that are sent out to students in the beginning of each semester, that stress that Temple doesn’t allow drugs on campus (especially in the residence halls), so there is no excuse for not being aware of the rules. Temple gives each student fair warnings about acceptable behavior, and if you cross the line, you have to be prepared to deal with the repercussions of those actions.

All of this being said, there are ways to get drugs from students in off-campus housing. Alcohol is a really big hit on campus. Most of the parties that are put on by campus students have alcohol, and there are a lot of places both in North Philadelphia and Center City to buy alcohol. Even if you are 21, you are still not allowed to have alcohol on campus, so that is something to keep in mind. But like any system, there are ways to get around it.
