An Examination of Underage Drinking in a Sample of Private University Students
Coll, Jose E.; Draves, Patrick R.; Major, Mary E.
College Student Journal, v42 n4 p982-985 Dec 2008
The present study provides further empirical support for the relationship between alcohol use and behavioral, academic, and health-related problems among underage college students. The intentional focus upon underage drinking in a small, private, religious university allows for pursuit of a clearer picture of the idiosyncratic forces involved in drinking among first-year college students. The results of this study suggest that the process through which drinking alcohol leads to problems may vary across gender. Results suggest gender differences in both the relationship between alcohol-related knowledge and use and the relationship between knowledge and problems.
