Drug Safety


{{ error }}
4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Lot of alcohol, lot of marijuana, you can find other stuff if you want to but if you want to avoid it you absolutely can.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Pretty prevalent but no one forces anyone to do anything

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol is prevalent. Some people drink several times a week, but others completely abstain. You can find what you want, and at the end of the day, nearly everyone prioritizes academics over fun (whether fun includes alcohol or not). Drug scene is probably similar to at other schools, but maybe more prevalent in certain communities such as greek life. Can find it if you want it, but no pressure to partake.

Drug Safety: Alcohol is by far the most common. Cocaine and weed are present, but much more covertly and there is way less pressure to use these drugs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Unless you're a genius, it'd be downright impossible to succeed at a school like Vanderbilt while supporting a drug habit. But then again, if you were a genius, you probably wouldn't be doing drugs in the first place.

There is a small drug scene on campus, so if you really need to find drugs, I'm sure you wouldn't have too much difficulty. The poison of choice on Vanderbilt's campus, however, is alcohol. Like any university, there are problems with binge drinking, but if you're smart enough to get into Vanderbilt, then you're smart enough to make your own decisions.
