One problem that we’ve devoted a lot of focus to recently is stopping college binge drinking. It represents a significant public health and safety problem for our country. Not only does college binge drinking severely inhibit academic progress, as most recently linked to in this study, but it also contributes to the death and injury of many college students across the nation, every year.
It’s an intractable problem. There a culture of binge drinking on many college campuses, sustained by the false notion that college and alcohol are inextricably tied, and that one can’t have a social life without alcohol.
Of course, this simply isn’t true – and as our student campaigns demonstrated, student alcohol abuse often impairs a social life far more than it enables it. Check out the work that these student campaigns did – and decide for yourself.
