Drug Safety

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: As all other colleges, there is drugs. Mostly alcohol and marijuana, but I have never seen anyone do a "hard drug", I know of some but it ain't that popular.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: They take smoking weed pretty seriously at villanova and you will get in some pretty big trouble if you get caught. Also our campus police along with local police busted at least two LSD dealers, one of which had $9,000 cash in his dormitory. The administration is pretty lenient with alcohol though. As long as you are not falling over or throwing up they will usually look the other way.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It does happen on campus, but is on the down low.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: They are like any other school. our RA's range from amazing to sh***y. if you have a hardo RA they will write you up if they see alcohol, but most are pretty chill. you can have alch in your room its fine just don't have it out in the open. drugs aren't really a thing here..i guess if you want it you can probably find it. Everyone is on some sort of study drug (all presribed idk how but everyone is) but during midterms and finals you can find someone to give you some definitely.

Drug Safety: The problem is on campus partying does not happen to much. This causes a lot of danger with people traveling to the greek life or the bars.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Drug use on campus is hardly a visible presence, and most students who do drugs aren’t doing them daily. You can occasionally run into softer drugs somewhere on campus, but, again, this is not a daily occurrence. Of course, there are a few kids who just sit around and smoke up all day, but it will require a search to find them. The drug of choice on campus by far is alcohol, as it is the most common and most accessible. Villanova is a dry campus and the police are pretty strict, so the use of any type of drug can become problematic if you are not intelligent about it.

Villanova has about the same amount of drug use as your average college or high school, and there is no pressure to get involved. While there are rumors that there is a heavy cocaine-using population on campus, there are few occasions where people are seen using it. Getting your hands on drugs isn’t overly complicated. If you are looking for drugs, they are not hard to find, but it is not something prevalent on campus. If you don’t do it, no one is going to bother you.
