Tuesday told high school students that when he was their age he was hardly a model student, experimenting with illegal drugs and drinking .   Obama previously admitted to doing drugs in high school and college in his book, "Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance."

Going away to college is a huge leap for many. It is definitely an exciting, yet scary chapter in life for young adults.

Schools recognize that there are many problems on campus, and as a result they have come up with consequences that can hopefully keep the problem in check.
