Megan Patrick quoted in a Christian Science Monitor commentary on changing college drinking culture

Patrick & Terry-McElrath’s study, High-intensity drinking by underage young adults in the United States, was cited in a Christian Science Monitor commentary on ways in which colleges should reframe the issue of alcohol use among students. Patrick says, “College attendance is associated with a freedom from adult responsibilities. Students, if they’re living with their parents, might not have the same opportunity to drink as students living on campus or in student housing.”
