Views on Prevention Programs and Perceptions of Alcohol Use on The College at Brockport Campus

Based on a request from The College at Brockportís Health Promotion and Prevention Services, the Research Methods class under the supervision of Dr. Joan Spade, organized a research project on the perceptions of alcohol use at Brockport and studentís knowledge of prevention and alternative alcohol activities. The class designed a 44 question survey. There were various categories of questions, along with demographic information gathered. The survey was administered through the campus email system, making sure to protect anonymity when responding. There were 1343 responses. A univariate analysis was done for all questions along bivariate analysis with various factors. Two open ended questions were the most difficult to analyze as well as revealed the most insight. The class found that although almost all of the respondents knew of binge drinking, they varied in their actual knowledge on the effects of alcohol consumption. Where respondents lived had a major impact on survey responses as well.
