  • 1. Drinking at USM
  • 2. Purpose and Hypothesis This research project was conducted with the purpose of discovering the drinking habits of the USM student population in order to prove that students are consuming mass amounts of alcohol on the weekends. My questions were designed to gain information of when, where and how much on a regular basis.
  • 3. Literature Review My springboard and basis for the survey questions was www.collegedrinkingprevention.gov This website offers snapshot statistics, as well as research, information on alcohol and where to find help, if needed.
  • 4. Expectations I expected to find that the majority of college students, underage and legal, were consuming mass amounts of alcohol on a regular basis. As well as overconsumption, I expected there to be a disregard for general safety.
  • 5. How to do it I decided that a survey handed out to a random population of USM students would be the best approach to gain the information necessary. The survey was taken by 62 students; 31 underage, and 31 legal students.
  • 6. The Survey Are you over 21?  Yes/No When did you start drinking?  High School/College/I don’t drink How many drinks do you consume weekly?  1-3/4-8/9-15/More than 15 Do you only drink on the weekends?  Yes/No Where do you usually drink?  Home/Bars/Frat Houses/House Party When you go out, do you make a safe plan to get home before you leave?  Yes/No
  • 7. Survey (continued) Have you ever driven under the influence of alcohol?  Yes/No Have you ever received a summons, or been arrested for alcohol related issues?  Yes/No Have you ever thrown up from drinking?  Yes/No Has being drunk, or hung over, ever prevented you from doing things that you need to get done?  Yes/No
  • 8. When did you start drinking? High School College I dont drink
  • 9. How many drinks do you consume weekly? 1 to 3 4 to 8 9 to 15 Over 15
  • 10. Do you only drink on the weekend? (Thursday- Sunday) Yes No
  • 11. Where do you usually drink? Home Bars Frat Houses House Parties
  • 12. When you go out, do you make a safe plan to get home before you leave? Yes No
  • 13. Have you ever driven under the influence of alcohol? Yes No
  • 14. Have you ever recevied a summons, or been arrested for alcohol related issues? Yes No
  • 15. Have you ever thrown up from drinking? Yes No
  • 16. Has being drunk, or hungover, ever prevented you from getting things done that you need to? Yes No
  • 17. Findings As you can see from the charts, the random population that I polled, drinks a lot, and often. Most of the findings were what I was expecting, but a few surprised me.  After viewing the statistics on collegedrinkingprevention.gov, I was expecting a general disregard of safety, but the majority of the students polled find a safe way home BEFORE they leave  That being said, I was surprised that so many students had driven under the influence.
  • 18. Conclusion In conclusion, my findings proved my hypothesis to be true. The majority of college students at USM, both legal and underage, are consuming alcohol in mass amounts, mostly on the weekends.
