Your Friends Might Drink More Than You Think

This post shares results from our Complete College Life Survey Series where we collected over 10,000 responses from women at 300+ colleges.  Check out even more of the results here.

We hear that college is full of drinking and drugs, but is it really?  Most college women (81 percent) are imbibing, but drinking responsibly may not be the norm—over half of college women report having thrown up from drinking.  In better news, less than 10 percent of college women smoke cigarettes (yes!), and of those who do, most report smoking them “rarely.”  When it comes to marijuana, three out of 10 college women are smoking, though most still report doing so “rarely.” Ten percent of college women have tried an illegal drug other than marijuana, but very few do other drugs regularly.
