Description

Drinking culture at college campuses and universities is a serious problem among students. Students drink for various reasons which can be controlled by students’ choices or peers. Four subsets are researched as to why drinking culture is so prevalent and some factors that play a role in this behavior. Four variables relating to student life in college were: residential locations, mental health issues, student athletes and peer pressure. Scholarly journals were selected to research these variables as they relate to drinking culture. Secondary data were analyzed from The Healthy Minds Study relating to alcohol use and consequences. There are many factors that cross over the four categories researched and the state of one's mental health is common to all four.
