Changing the Culture: College Drinking
Parents and educators—and even students themselves—may feel overwhelmed by the sometimes excessive drinking done by college-age youth.
A Web site from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, called College Drinking—Changing the Culture, offers facts and resources to families, students, and college leaders.
About 1,700 college students between ages 18 and 24 die each year from alcohol-related unintentional injuries, including motor vehicle crashes, according to researchers who helped develop the site’s content.
College administrators will find tools to change the alcohol culture on their campuses. Students will find interactive features, like eCards and a trip through the human body describing how alcohol affects vital organs.
For parents, the site offers guidance on what they need to know about college drinking.
To find these and other resources, visit College Drinking—Changing the Culture.
