The topic that I chose to research is alcohol abuse among college students. There is no doubt that college students are among the leaders in binge-drinking and alcohol consumers in this country. By researching this topic, I'd like to figure out exactly why college students are prone to alcohol abuse, how students are impacted by alcohol consumption, and what could be done to lower the rates of alcohol abuse in the future. This is a topic that I think most, if not all college students can relate to somehow. I believe that there is most likely a variety of social and psychological reasons for over consumption, and I'd like to be able to bring some of these reasons to light.
