Do Colleges Tolerate Binging?

Colleges Tolerate Binging

An “Animal House” mentality still prevalis on may college campuses,
and hinders prevention efforts aimed at binge drinking. UPI reported
April 21. A study by the University of Illinois at Chicago and the
Harvard School of Public Health found that colleges are more tolerant of
binge drinking than the rest of society and sometimes hae traditions that
encourage heavy drinking. Researchers also found that increasing federal
excise taxes on alcohol would not do much to decrease drinking among
college students, but that a crackdown on drunk driving probably would.
More than 16,000 college students participated in the study.
