Binge Drinking and Crime Victimization on the College Campus

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Many studies over the last 30 years have substantiated the problems of binge-drinking and drug abuse on American college campuses, but few of these studies have examined the direct and indirect harms and negative consequences of extreme intoxication on both the students who excessively drink and other students at these “party schools.” While an alcohol-victimization link has certainly been supported by research on sexual victimization, other types of crimes have been largely ignored by previous campus research. Based on data collected from a self-report victimization survey administered to students at a large public university, this paper looks specifically at a wide range of victimization incidents that are occurring on college campuses, largely while students are intoxicated, and are seldom reported to police. The paper will especially examine: 1) the risks of physical, sexual and property crime when students binge drink, bar hop and “pregame” 2) reasons why most student-perpetrated incidents are not reported to police, and 3) the various negative consequences of victimization on students’ academic and emotional well-being.
