Drug Safety

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: The university is very aware of the pressure on college kids to drink and use drugs and provides more than adequate means of helping fight against it.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is no pressure. No one judges you on what you do really. People are open to whatever and are easy going about it.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's not that bad. However, for the dorms to be drug free, the hallway smells like weed almost all the time.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Although there is smoking and drinking on campus its rarely ever just out in the open, no one tries to get caught because they can get in trouble for it

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's hard to tell if there are drugs on campus unless you live on campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When asked, the average student at Wayne State University doesn’t know anything about a drug scene. The closest thing to a “drug scene” here is cigarettes and alcohol. Yes, undoubtedly, someone will have a joint stashed away, but there is not major selling or the use of illegal drugs on campus. As for cigarettes, many people can be seen smoking, but the University is trying to become a smoke-free environment altogether. There is some alcohol on campus in the dorms, just like any other campus, but it is not a lot. WSU's drug scene is pretty much nonexistent because of hefty fines, and the campus police tend to strictly enforce the laws.

Off campus is another story. It is downtown Detroit; there are always a few people who know the drug scene very well. Yes, someone may ask if you are interested, but no one will be pushy about it. Wayne State University police officers also patrol the surrounding areas of campus, and they try to enforce the law even with non-students, faculty, or staff members.
