RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Students attending Virginia colleges and universities plan to discuss how drug and alcohol use affects campus safety.

 

The students from Old Dominion, Radford and Virginia State universities, the University of Virginia, and two community colleges are expected to share their views at Wednesday's panel discussion hosted by the State Council of Higher Education.

 

The conversation comes in light of longstanding concerns about college students overusing alcohol and the recent discovery of suspected student drug-making operations at two state universities.

 

The students are members of SCHEV's student advisory committee. The 22-student group advises the council on issues of concern at Virginia's colleges and universities. Previous panel discussion topics have included the affordability of higher education and the impact of out-of-state students at Virginia's colleges and universities.
