4 College Senior

Drug Safety: If you drink at dorms, you will get in trouble. RAs would come and take your name. It's serious!

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is no peer pressure to use any sort of drugs or drink alcohol. The program I'm in is actually strong about providing help and counseling to addicts, so drugs/substances are a sensitive topic. Students drink, but it's not excessive, and it's not forced on anyone which is nice.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is next to no peer pressure, but if you want to party, there are options.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There's a good amount of smokers attending, but alcohol and other drugs aren't prevalent on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't really see any use of drugs or alcohol

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The school has a zero-tolerance stance against alcohol, but generally you will not be thrown in jail if you are caught drinking. Drug problems at the U are minimal, but study drugs like Ritalin or Adderall seem to be popular. Most drug users who do partake do so in their off-campus apartments, and it is very rare to see any drug use on campus. One reason for this is that the opportunity for interaction between drug seller and drug buyer is greatly minimized by the "commuter effect." Also, with the large Mormon population found on campus, most people shy away from substance abuse; thus, the peer pressure is greatly reduced. However, some peer pressure exists for those living in the dorms.
