There isn't any pressure to do anything you don’t want to, but there are some UALR students who do drugs. You really won’t see the drug use itself, but it is clear that some students are participating in the drug scene—the evidence is in their bloodshot eyes, smell of their clothing, and their general behavior.
The University has very strong policies against drug and alcohol. The first offense is usually a fine or something related to that, but really depends on the severity of the violation. Second or several violations could lead to a student getting suspended from the University. However, the good thing about the drug scene at UALR is that not too many students are involved.
