Alcohol is the most widely abused drug in American colleges and universities. Among young adults in general, regular drinking of alcoholic beverages is more common than regular use of any other drug containing substances, including cigarettes and coffee (Dean, 1982).

What is surprising is how little our colleges and universities including those teaching agriculture have been able to do in response to widespread drinking and its consequences.
