General Description of Student Attitudes Toward Alcohol and Drinking Behavior.
Schell, Robert E.
The purposes of this survey were: (1) to provide the Oswego campus community with a description of the way in which students use and think about alcohol; (2) to describe an existing base of data which can be used to answer a variety of question about drinking asked by members of the campus community. A questionnaire was utilized to study the attitudes and behaviors of 135 undergraduate students. The questionnaire is reproduced as a part of this document, and could be used elsewhere "as is" or in modified form. The results of this study are intended to provide a broad description of the way in which students use and think about alcohol. There is no attempt to draw any firm conclusions; however the following points emerge: (1) the range of drinking behavior is extremely broad; and (2) half the students do not believe that drinking represents a serious problem for students. Of the half that do see it as a problem, a third do not believe that the college should be involved in the "problem". (Author/JLL)
