Binge and Non-Binge College Students' Perceptions of Other Students' Drinking Habits
Miley, William M.; Frank, Michael
College Student Journal, v40 n2 p259-262 Jun 2006
We investigated whether there was a relationship between the amount of alcohol students drank themselves and the amount they believed other students drank. We further investigated whether peer relationships affected their perceptions on drinking more than their perceptions of student drinking in general. Three hundred six students at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey were given the Survey of Students' Perceptions of Campus Alcohol and Other Drug Norms (CORE Institute, Carbondale, IL.). Results indicated students who drank more than five drinks at a setting believed other college students drank more than students who drank less. In particular, male college students, on-campus students, and sorority students perceived other college students drinking more than they actually did. (Contains 2 tables.)
