Drinking In College: Most Students Do It

Drinking In College: Most Students Do It

By SOP newswire2

College is a time when many young people across the nation endure rigorous classes in order to obtain a good job that will increase their chances of survival. However, with the stress of hard classes and fitting in with their peers, drinking has become a major problem at many colleges throughout the United States. In recent studies by the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence, 43% of all students reported drinking in a high risk manner at some point of their college career.

 There are many dangers in heavy drinking that include date rape crimes, hospitalization because of an overdose, or even death to one`s self or someone else. Drinking does not only affect the person who is consuming the alcohol, but it can and will affect everyone around them. In another recent study 60.5% of students have had their study or sleep interrupted due to a friend drinking while 53.6% have admitted to having to take care of a drunken classmate or friend.
