Campus Involvement, Perceived Campus Connection, and Alcohol Use in College Athletes
Brenner, James W.; Metz, Stacie M.; Brenner, Christina J.
Journal of Drug Education, v39 n3 p303-320 2009
This research study examined the relationship of college athletes' levels of campus involvement and campus connection to their alcohol use. A survey measuring alcohol use, campus involvement and campus connection was administered to 720 athletes at nine institutions. Participants who reported having 5 or more drinks on one occasion in the past two weeks had higher levels of campus connection than those who did not report that level of alcohol consumption; but, conversely these college athletes also reported lower levels of campus involvement. It is suggested that increasing campus involvement of college athletes could be an effective strategy to reduce high-risk alcohol use by college athletes and possibly even college students as a whole.
