Abstract

This paper examines the effects of underage drinking on college campuses. Underage drinking in United States colleges has been a serious issue, especially binge drinking. Along with that, there are negative consequences from underage drinking for law enforcement which are secondary impacts. These impacts include property damage, vandalism, fights, sexual violence, and reduced quality of life. The research method design consists of acquiring data from first and transfer year students who are going to attend Central Washington University. The data examines approximately 1,000 students’ responses to a Likert-scale survey concerning alcohol use, the law, and the police. The data will be placed in the context of relevant literature and public policy.
