A new war on drugs
You injure your shoulder at the gym, a snapped tendon perhaps. A minor surgery follows and as part of your treatment plan, your doctor prescribes painkillers. Normal, right? During every checkup your doctor writes you a Vicodin prescription and nonchalantly asks you, “Would you like something stronger for your pain?” Some even have the nerve to wink at you. He is a doctor, what harm can come out of it? Meh! “Oh yeah, I still feel some pain,” you say. Several weeks later, you are still seeing your favorite doctor and asking for the same prescription of pain medication. This time though, you are seeking a high. Welcome to the United States of Addiction, a land of pain, irony and painful ironies.

Around and around we go
Drexel students have always had a love-hate relationship with the administration. The term “The Drexel Shaft” dates to well before anyone at the University today can remember, and its legacy seems content to live on for student bodies to come. However, we’re finally beginning to move past the top-down style of administration which has been the hallmark of the University for so long.

Date Rape Drugs: getting back up from the bathroom floor
I remember waking up with sweat on my forehead and the strange comfort of my cheek pressed against the cool tile of the bathroom floor. “What is your name? Where are you? What year is it?” A strange woman’s voice pierced through the air. I’m not the first or the last person to be drugged by an anonymous monster while out with friends. I’m not the first or the last person to wake up with no recollection of what happened, but surrounded by angels who found me before someone else did. I am one of the many, but not the first nor will be last. I am someone with a story, one that all too often goes unheard.

Finals drive undergraduates to illegal Adderall use
Finals week officially begins March 18 on Drexel University’s campus, and the days and weeks leading up to it pit many students against a bevy of papers, exams and group projects. After all, this is the university that asks students to “Live it 24/7,” where a term is just 10 weeks and the next one is right around the corner. So when coffee alone isn’t enough to get through the all-nighters and cram sessions, some students self-medicate. At Drexel, this often means Adderall.
