Summary
Drinking has become recognized as one of the most important problems facing today's college student. Even though college drinking has increased only modestly over the past few decades, concern about its health, behavioral, and safety consequences has risen rapidly. This book examines college drinking as a social problem within higher education, based on interviews with many leading figures engaged in addressing the problem. It explains how high-risk drinking is defined, and assesses the evidence about how many students are binge drinkers and what kinds of behavioral and health problems they have as a consequence. The book also answers the crucial questions of why students binge drink and what mixture of personal and environmental factors produce binge drinking. The complex links to campus crime and sexual assault are discussed fully. Key practical questions about effective prevention programs and countermeasures are discussed in detail. Students and parents can take action to lower the risk of binge drinking by following the book's recommendations and by consulting its appendix, which explains how to use institutional data about alcohol violations and crime, which is available for several thousand colleges. Likewise, administrators, trustees, and faculty will find a full discussion of the scope of the problem and what can be done about it. This volume examines binge drinking as a social problem within higher education
