Drug Safety

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Not many people drink or smoke.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There was an instance where someone I knew had be caught smoking in his dorm room. Little to no action was taken then. When it happened again, still, nothing was done about it except have his paraphernalia taken away. However, when another friend of mine was caught smoking in his dorm room, he was kicked out of housing in three days and can not come back on campus for three years. This second student had much less on him and in his room than the first student. I'm just saying that the system is pretty messed up and backwards.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
