  • I’ve personally never heard of companies who can produce a paper for you until word got around among my college groupmates. My professor asked me to write a research paper based on a field I have no idea about. My research skills are also very poor. So, I thought I’d give it a try. I chose a writer who matched my writing style and fulfilled every requirement I proposed. I turned my paper in and I actually got a good grade. I highly recommend ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐

  3. 3. “College Drinking, Drug Use Grows More Extreme” By: Buddy T  Summary This article describes the results of a four year study, titled Wasting the Be st and the Brig hte st: Substance Abuse at Am e rica's Co lle g e s and Unive rsitie s. Despite efforts to prevent alcohol abuse in colleges the study found that these preventive efforts did not work. Excessive drinking among college students has increased. University’s need to work harder to prevent so many college students to succumb to the use of alcohol. T, Buddy. (2009, March 23). College Drinking, Drug Use Grows More Extreme. Abo ut.

  5. 5. Personal Reflection "College presidents, deans and trustees have facilitated a college culture of alcohol and drug abuse that is linked to poor student academic performance, depression, anxiety, suicide, property damage, vandalism, fights and a host of medical problems.” A-Ha!  University’s need to be stricter in their alcohol use on campus policies.  We need to work to figure out the reasoning behind the high alcohol use stats among college students instead of just publishing numbers.  We also need to find ways in which colleges can be more effective in their preventive efforts at decreasing these statistics.

  7. 7. “Drinking Games Deadly to College Students” By: Amy Forliti  Summary From beer pong to drinking 21 shots on your 21st birthday, drinking games lead some college students to their accidental deaths. College student might not necessarily drink more days than others, but when it comes to binge drinking (how much they drink during one occasion), college students raise the bar. One way they do this is through drinking games. Drinking games and binge drinking can lead to alcohol poisoning which in turn can lead to death. In a study conducted through 1999 to 2005, the number of alcohol-poisoning deaths doubled to 35 in 2005. Forliti, Amy. (2008, July 7). Drinking Games Deadly to College Students. USATo day.

  9. 9. Personal Reflection “College students on average drink only a little more than adults in a typical week or month, said Scott Walters, an assistant professor of behavioral sciences at the University of Texas School of Public Health. But college students "tend to save the drinks up and drink them all at once." A-Ha!  Teens and young adults should know and understand the effects of alcohol.  But not only that, they should know the signs (in the instance they choose to drink or be around those that are drinking) of alcohol poisoning so they can call 911 and take proper precautions to prevent death.  Maybe not only teens and young adults should be more knowledgeable but other adults as well. That way we can better educate our children of the negative effects and consequences. Forliti, Amy. (2008, July 7). Drinking Games Deadly to College Students. USATo da y.

  11. 11. “College Students Use Alcohol as Way of Coping with Social Anxiety” By: Deanne Repich  Summary College students drink for various reasons but one of the more psychological reasons that they drink is to deal with social anxiety. Many college students already feel the pressures of everyday college life to the extreme, but when it comes to sociological factors many use alcohol to cope. Researchers are now studying the relationship between social anxiety and heavy drinking problems.Repich, Deanne. College Students Use Alcohol as Way of Coping with Social Anxiety. Tale ntDe ve lo p.

  13. 13. Personal Reflection “Social anxiety is the most common type of anxiety disorder and it affects 15% of Americans. Social anxiety, also known as social phobia, is diagnosed as overwhelming anxiety, fear, and self- consciousness in everyday social situations.  It triggers a host of physical symptoms, anxious thoughts, and avoidance behaviors.” A-Ha!  Social anxiety is not only rooted in psychological factors but also personal environment and surroundings can contribute to the extremity at which one feels anxiety.  College often brings out many of the angst that those with social anxiety feel.  Alcohol is so abundant and easy to get at college that it is seen as an easy outlet to escape the anxiety.
