Binge Drinking: The Real Story About Alcohol Use at CSB/SJU
Eric Felsch, SJU Staff Counselor, Jenny Miller, CSB Counselor, and Janet Anderson, Joint Director of Student Activities and Leadership Development
Have you ever wondered about the alcohol culture at CSB/SJU? Do you think binge drinking is a problem here? Do you know how many of our students don't drink at all? Have you ever wondered if a students' drinking or drugging has effected their performance in your class? If you have ever asked yourself these questions, then come find out the real story of alcohol and drug use at CSB/SJU.
This Friday Forum presents data collected last spring that measured CSB/SJU student alcohol and other drug usage. We will share information regarding our students general drug and alcohol use rates and then break down this information according to gender and age. Why students drink, the perceived consequences for drinking, and where they drink will also be shared with the audience. We will also talk about student perceptions of drug and alcohol use, and how these perceptions influence the real situation on our campuses. Our results were part of a national study on college student alcohol and other drug use, and we hope to disseminate comparison data at a later date.
