"Binge drinking among college students continues to rise," according to Join Together, a project of the Boston University School of Public Health.

And it's irresponsible and counter-productive to engage in self-serving scare-mongering. It might lead to increased organizational funding, but it contributes to the problem that it supposedly seeks to reduce. To learn why, visit http://www.alcoholfacts.org.
