This essay talks about college alcoholism and its affect on society. The paper discusses why alcoholism among college students is particularly common due to factors such as peer pressure, loneliness and exam pressures. The dangers and myths of alcoholism among college students are also discussed.

From the Paper:

"Each passing year, thousands of college students lose their lives to alcohol. Commonly referred to as the social drug, alcohol is the third leading cause of preventable death among college students. It is estimated that as many as 360,000 of the nation's twelve million undergraduates will ultimately die from alcohol related causes, far more than the number of students who will be awarded advanced degrees (Shalala 5). Although the nation's budget allots millions of dollars towards programs to prevent alcoholism among college students, the number of college alcoholics continues to rise annually. While the causes of drinking vary from person to person, they are typically due to peer pressure, depression, loneliness, fraternities, and the lack of parental guidance."
