University administrators are concerned with growing trends in abuse of the prescription stimulant Adderall on college campuses. Previous studies show that college students have ignored the risks associated with using Adderall. WPI currently has no data on Adderall abuse; therefore, this project surveyed the undergraduate population, collected online narratives, and interviewed experts and administration. Totally, 13% reported abuse, a comparatively lower rate than other schools. This study offers a typical abuser profile and discusses the attitudes regarding abuse on campus.
