Self-Reported Reasons for Why College Students Drink.
Klein, Hugh
Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, v37 n2 p14-28 Win 1992
Surveyed 526 on-campus college students about their reasons for drinking alcoholic beverages. Results indicated that students reported drinking because they liked the taste of alcohol and because drinking helped them celebrate special occasions. Negative or disintegrative reasons were endorsed rarely, and then usually by males, Greek organization members, and fraternity house residents. (Author/NB)
