Peer response 1 Hi Jennifer, I do think education about drinking is important on college campuses. The alcohol policy has good intentions. I think that it emphasizing personal responsibility is an excellent strategy. Mainly because as you said these are intended to being about “lifelong goal and values” (Nugent & Jones, pg. 290).
Social Norms Theory Intervention (Background) An analysis of Perkins and Berkowitz (1986) showed their approach using social norms theory worked in reducing binge drinking. Social norm theory would suggest that students consume alcohol in college and university in attempts to “fit in” (Perkins & Berkowitz, 1986). Many students have misperceptions on the drinking norms among their peers, but will use this perception to guide their behaviours and attitude towards drinking (Glider et. al, 2001).
Many people have heard the rumors about hazing happening on college campuses. The rumors are particularly associated with Greek Organizations. While most Greek Organizations, such as National Panhellenic Conference and the North American Interfraternity Conference, have policies forbidding hazing, it is still very prevalent within Greek life. Hazing practices within Greek organizations is something that has been happening and will continue to happen as a way to initiate new members into these elite organizations. When it comes to talking about hazing within Greek organizations, first the terms “hazing” and “fraternities and sororities” must be defined.
There are organizations that surround the colleges and universities, such as, sororities and fraternities. Sororities and fraternities are amongst the general college student’s populations. The members have a high chance of engaging in drinking alcohol and abusing drugs. The reason behind the high risk of drinking alcohol and drug use are other peers or student colleagues peer pressuring students into drinking alcohol and using drugs. It’s very common that sororities and fraternities lure non-Greek organizations students into thinking that drinking alcohol and using drug substances is fun and enjoying what college has to offer.
The topic I am researching is how greek life, parties, and alcohol play a part of rape culture on college campuses. Many of my sources focused on the same issues, and many of them concluded studies showing how Greek life contributes to this modern issue. Factors within this issue is how fraternities and male sports teams are perceived and who is attracted to joining these organizations. The main argument among all of these sources were that parties and alcohol abuse create an environment that can be a breeding ground for this unacceptable type of behavior. My first source, written by Stephen E. Humphrey conducted several tests and surveys with questionnaires using college students as the subjects.
In both ancient Greece and modern American society, people who drink alcohol are punished. No matter the degree of the punishment, there are consequences to drinking alcoholic beverages. The consequence to drinking could be as minor as giving away valuable gifts to strangers or as grave as taking another person's or one's own life. Alcohol impairs the function of the brain which, in turn, makes someone vulnerable to any harm. Although many things have changed from ancient Greece up to today's modern society, the consequences that follow alcohol are quite similar.
Mr. Chairman, judges, ladies and gentleman, todays motion is the oppositions of the current drinking age. We believe the drinking age should be lowered. First, the current alcohol culture is lethal to many young adults. Many college professors would argue the same point.
The novel Guyland talks about middle white males and how they become a part of this Guyland. This is a state of extended period for young males throughout their college years and after before reaching adulthood. The novel defines this state as, “guyland is the world in which young men live. It in both a state of live, a liminal undefined time spend between adolescence and adulthood that can often stretch for a decade or more (Kimmel 2008:4) Men in this environment are affected by masculinity in the form that they have to conform to what society sees as masculine. These ideas can be seen in college life in the forms of binge drinking and Greek Organizations.
Binge drinking has become a major problem with many college students on campus. This is because of numerous universities ' grounds that abstain from taking a gander at the issues of club and sorority that partake in gatherings that has a craving for drinking is the most ideal approach to have a fabulous time.

Alcohol can have grave effects on anyone who consumes high amounts of the drug. It has damaging effects on a person’s mind, body, and lifestyle.
