Berkley-Patton, Jannette Y.; Prosser, Ellie C.; McCluskey-Fawcett, Kathleen A.; Towns, Carrie
NASPA Journal, v40 n4 Sum 2003
Assesses a social norms intervention's attempt to decrease drinking amounts in students making the transition to university life. Results indicated that the majority of freshmen students consistently drank in a moderate range, yet consistently overestimated their peers' drinking levels. Results suggest the drinking rates significantly decreased for incoming freshmen from summer 1999 compared to spring 2000 follow-up norms. (Contains 30 references.) (GCP)
