For many college students, binge drinking may seem like the norm. In fact, two out of three US college students admit to having engaged in binge drinking within the last month!
Of course, college is not just about studying – it’s about meeting people, socializing, finding out who you are, engaging in team sports, getting fit, having fun, and other activities.
