Alcohol Consumption of Fraternity Members and Non-Members

4 April 2015
A research of the difference in drinking level between fraternity members and non-members.

This is a research paper testing the hypothesis that fraternity members increase their drinking levels to a greater degree than non-members. The evidence collected suggested that alcohol education targets fraternity members.
“Alcohol use and abuse on college campuses has been a very serious concern among American colleges (Wechsler, Dowdall, Maenner, Gledhill-Hoyt & Lee, 1998). In 1993, 1997 and 1999, large national studies on college students’ drinking behavior were conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health College Alcohol Study (CAS). These studies, which surveyed students at 140 colleges and universities, found that approximately two out of five college students were binge drinkers. The definition of binge drinking applied to the studies was the consumption of five or more drinks in a row for men, and four or more for women in the previous two weeks. (Wechsler, Eun Lee, Kud & Lee, 2000). Alcohol-related behavioral problems involving a fraternity have been even more prominent (Hirschorn, as cited in Creeden, 1988).”
