Alcohol Deaths Rise among College Students

Alcohol-related deaths among U.S. college students have increased from 1,440 in 1998 to 1,825 less than a decade later, in 2005, according to the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

In response to the increasingly complex issue of alcohol abuse among college students, the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism created the Task Force on College Drinking in 1998. Visit the task force site with facts on college drinking here.
