Maryland College Students More Likely to Drink

November 1st, 2013 by WCBC Radio

A new study finds that underage college students in Maryland are significantly more likely to drink alcohol than those in other parts of the United States. The Maryland Collaborative to Reduce College Drinking and Related Problems released the report this week. It found that 83 percent of underage students in Maryland used alcohol in the past year, compared with 75 percent elsewhere in the country. There was no such geographical difference among students of legal drinking age. The study also found that students in Maryland and elsewhere engaged in binge drinking to about the same extent. It’s a problem Frostburg State University President Dr Jonathan Gibralter is well aware of- and one that unfortunately has no easy solutions.
