Meaningfulness of Press Accounts

The articles listed provide significant insight into the campus environment.  As may be noted, some colleges and universities have been covered in the press more frequently than others.  Least one get the impression that this indicates a greater problem or more concern about the problem with those colleges with more coverage, this may not be a fair conclusion. 

The number of articles for each college may only reflect the importance the community and that specific college places on the issue.  For instance, Indiana, Minnesota, Utah, and the DC area all seem to have significant media coverage.  Again this could well be the result of the community concern and/or the priorities that the colleges place on incidents involving there students. 

What one can take from the articles is a greater general awareness of the practices and risks at many, if not most, of the nations campuses.  In addition to the articles covering specific colleges, numerous articles are published on a recurring basis.  These are identified in the "Articles Applying Generally to Students and the College Experience"  page and also provide significant insight into the overall college experience.

The purpose of this exercise is not to disparage any one institution nor to dissuade one from seeking the appropriate college experience for either themselves or their child, but solely to increase awareness and hopeful assist those to wish to change the harmful prevailing alcohol culture on too many of our campuses.
