Duquesne students stress the invisibility of the drug scene on campus. As with most other universities, there is some drug use. If one is into that sort of thing, they should have few problems finding what they want. Alcohol is the most widely used drug on campus, with marijuana following behind in popularity. There is some tolerance among RAs and the police regarding alcohol use, but they do not stand for illicit drug use.
The most important issue regarding drug use is the lack of peer pressure. Drugs and alcohol are available and used by students, but those who choose to focus on other hobbies will not be forced into a harmful situation. Students generally turn a blind eye towards drug use, which is not hard, considering it is not readily visible among the student body. RAs and the police keep their eyes open for any illegal activities, and they will act if the situation requires it.
