Drug Safety: I have felt virtually no peer pressure regarding drugs/alcohol. You don't need those things to be accepted here.

Drug Safety: Most drugs are accessible among certain social groups, but there are lots of people who don't do any hard drugs or rely on drugs to be social. Administration is extremely lax on drug use and treats the students like adults. Marijuana is the most widespread illegal drug and is fairly easy to get.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The drug and alcohol scene on campus is pretty large. A majority of the student body drinks, especially on the weekends. There are a variety of drugs being used. You can find tobacco, marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, and prescription pills. However, those hard drugs don’t dominate life—it’s mostly just marijuana. There is enough variety of people’s involvement with drugs and alcohol that if it’s not your thing, you won’t feel pressure to participate. You’ll see people with drugs and alcohol mostly at parties over the weekends. It’s not a daily presence.

The school is incredibly lax when it comes to alcohol. There are rumors that there has never been a drinking ticket issued. Obviously, if you throw a massive party in your dorm room, there will be some consequences. However, if you are able to keep yourself in control, you will be fine. Authorities are stricter about drug use, which is why you won’t find anyone openly using. The University abides by federal laws, so you will get in trouble if you are caught with illegal drugs. In addition, you could receive a sanction from the University. Those sanctions range from getting kicked out of housing to being expelled. Overall, if you want drugs or alcohol on campus, you can find them, and as long as you are responsible and can control yourself, you won’t get in trouble. If you don’t want them, you might have to deal with other people drinking and using drugs, but you won’t be pressured into doing anything outside of your comfort zone.
