Drinking Among College Freshmen Hits Record Low, Major Survey Finds
from Yahoo News
The U.S. economy may be on the mend, but that hasn't stopped it from influencing a generation in an unexpected way: For the first time ever, an annual survey of college freshman has found that first-year students are more focused on their job prospects than their party plans. According to the "2012 Freshman Norms report," conducted by UCLA's Cooperative Institutional Research Program each year since 1966, only 33 percent of college freshman reported drinking beer in 2012, down from 35.4 percent in 2011 and far lower than the 73.7 percent who were knocking back drinks in 1982, when many of their own parents were in college.
