At Allegheny, if you are only friends with people who are very anti-drug, you’ll never see or hear anything about drugs on campus. But, if you are friends with a lot of different kinds of people and go to a bunch of parties, you’ll realize just how many people smoke pot and even how many people use harder drugs. If you happen to be looking for drugs on campus, you can find whatever you are looking for.
Drugs tend to travel only in certain circles, so if you stay out of those circles, you won’t see them. Also, peer pressure is relatively low with drugs, but if you're at a party with an open keg, you'll be expected to have a red Solo cup in hand. Security rarely busts parties and rarely stops students unless they're making some sort of scene or destroying property. Parties thrown by Greeks and athletes usually have two or three kegs tapped out by the end of the night. Weed use is rampant in off-campus houses, but first-year students wouldn't know unless they went around looking and asking. Ultimately, the rigor of Allegheny coursework keeps people from doing drugs too regularly, and those who try to maintain their drug habit instead of schoolwork will likely drop out.
