While it may seem like everyone is drinking or smoking, that’s not necessarily the case.

So, what does it mean?

That means most students are doing something other than getting drunk on a Saturday night. Of those who do drink, most drink no more than twice a week. 44 percent of students reported drinking two times or less in the last month, and 91 percent reported drinking nine times or less.

With more than seven out of ten Springfield College students reporting not using marijuana in the last month, most aren’t smoking regularly!

Data is from the CORE survey administered at Springfield College in 2017, and ACHA-NCHA survey in 2014.
