Those who have no interest in doing drugs will find it easy to build a drug-free social life at Wash U. Within certain social circles, pot is considered common currency, but unless all of your friends are potheads, it won't pose any social difficulties to the non-user. Some harder drugs are used on campus, but the harder they get, the fewer the people who use them. Mushrooms are pretty normal for regular pot users, while cocaine has a surprisingly large presence, especially among the fraternity social scene. Ecstasy, however, is virtually absent from campus.
For those looking to avoid drugs at all costs, one big tip is to request a room on a substance-free floor or dorm, since most of the non-substance-free dorms will inevitably have a few pot smokers, and they may end up across the hall from you. For parties, it will be difficult to avoid drugs altogether, since petty drugs are a mainstay at frat parties, as well as off-campus events. When confronted with drugs, all you have to do is remember the sage advice of former first lady Barbara Bush: Just say no.
