Alcohol and Freshmen at Selected Christian Colleges: A Description of Alcohol in their Homes, their Beliefs, and Behaviors in the last Twenty Years
This study is a longitudinal description of freshmen in Christian colleges concerning the presence of alcohol in their homes of origin during high school, their views of consuming alcohol, and their alcohol consumption. The sample of over 3,330 surveys was collected annually for 20 years through selected freshmen courses primarily at two colleges, although surveys were originally collected from six Christian colleges. This research provides empirical data describing the presence of alcohol in the home environments of Christian college freshmen, their views on alcohol, and empirical data on alcohol use by Christian college freshmen. This research attempts to offer conversation starters for students, faculty, and administrators on the topic of alcohol.
