Drinking and Drug Use Affecting College Students

  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Drinking and drug use on or near college campuses affect the safety of the students who partake of alcohol and drugs as well as those with whom they interact. 
     Students from Old Dominion, Radford and Virginia State universities, the University of Virginia, and two community colleges discussed alcohol and drug use Wednesday at a panel discussion hosted by the State Council of Higher Education.
     The students at the four-year schools agreed that alcohol is especially a safety concern, despite colleges and universities making clear to students what their drug and alcohol policies are as well as resources that are available for those who need assistance. 
     The conversation came in light of longstanding concerns about college students overusing alcohol and the recent discovery of suspected student drug-making operations at two universities.
