7 Things That All College Students do to Avoid ...


If you are heading off to college soon, there are some things that all college students do that you should try to avoid.

I know that when I started college, I was surprised by what these college kids do.

However, depending on your school and school culture, these things might be different.2

These are some things that all college students do that you should keep an eye out for:

1. Drink

Underage drinking is one of the most common things that all college students do.

Well, almost.

I have seen movies about college life and I know that they are often times exaggerated, but college students actually participate in this (illegal!) activity frequently.

Not only is alcohol not good for you, but you might be underage.

That aside, it is dangerous because alcohol will make you less aware and more vulnerable.

2. Smoke

I’m just going to leave this to your imagination as to what college kids smoke.

This actually makes me really sad because a lot of this is a result of peer pressure.

If you know that using some substances is illegal or just flat out bad for you, just don’t do it.

Don’t risk yourself and your heath for a few scattered cheers.

3. Haze

This is an iffy topic because part of it crosses into Greek life.2

I’m not going to comment on whether or not this actually happens, but don’t tolerate hazing.

Most importantly, don’t do it to others.

Schools have very strict policies and I know some people who have been expelled for doing this.

4. Don’t do Drugs

Ladies, don’t do drugs!

I know what you all are probably thinking about, but I’m actually referring to those “smart drugs” that college students love, like Adderall.

It might seem like a good idea at the time, but side effects include but are not limited to nervousness, anxiety, dizziness, tremor, fear, and headaches.2

If this doesn’t change your mind about drugs, try looking up some pictures of drug users – eek!
