Another study on college drinking… In a study released today, the Task Force on College Drinking, part of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, found that “the consequences of college drinking are larger and more destructive than commonly realized.” The study claims that 1,400 college students die each year in alcohol-related incidents. It also counted as college students those aged 18-24, meaning a majority of legal-aged drinkers were counted as students. The study did not discuss if these statistics have been increasing or decreasing in recent years. It reviewed several possible solutions, labeling as “promising” Friday classes and exams, Saturday morning classes, and consistently enforced discipline for alcohol policy infractions. We’ve heard this before.
