Nation-wide research conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health reveals that the proportion of college students in the U.S. who consumed any alcohol within the previous month decreased significantly between 1993 and 2001.
The study also found that average consumption among students under the age of 21 dropped from 22.3 drinks per month in 1993 to 20.8 per month in the latter period. Thus, in 2001, college students in the U/.S. under the age of 21 consumed an average of only 2/3 of a drink per day.
