Drug Safety


{{ error }}
3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Its not openly out there, but if you keep your eyes open and alert you'll catch it. I've never been pressured to taking drugs or to drink.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's not everywhere, but people so engage in illegal acts.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm sure there are plenty of students who use drugs just as any other school, but it isn't a huge deal at Texas State. We do however have a strong policy that forbids them to be on campus under any influence. Visibility isn't very prominent and no one will really peer pressure you to do anything you don't want to do, at least not anyone who I've encountered thus far.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Honestly i don't care about the drug scene. i don't pay attention to that crap.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: Lots of alcohol with easy access, a huge partylife that has taken over the reputation of Texas State.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Nowadays, you can't really escape from hearing that someone has been smoking something. Texas State has been deemed the "party college" more than once. In fact, that is how it has been known for some time now. But you can easily see how the students balance their academic life with other "recreations" they take part in.

If you have an addiction problem with any type of drug, Texas State offers a drug counseling center where you can talk about your problem to a counselor or psychiatrist. There are also support groups you can join that include other students who are having the same issues as you. With these support groups, you can be there for each other as accountability partners or just some new friends to hang out with.
