The Real Story at USI

Social Norms

What to do at USI without drinking?
What do you want to do?  There is so much going on!


Everyone drinks in college...right?
The reality is that there are fewer big partiers than you might think. Many students don't drink at all, and among those who do, most do so in a lower-risk manner.

Your friends would prefer that you can take care of yourself!

  • 97.2% of USI students prefer to hang out with friends who don't drink or stay in control. No one wants to have to babysit.
  • 98.5% of USI students prefer to date someone who doesn't drink or stays in control. And this rises to 100% for women! Don't be the person who no one wants to date.

And, most of us don't drink to excess!

  • 84.0% of USI students have 0, 1, 2, or 3 drinks when hanging out with friends, and 41.5% say they don't usually drink at all!
  • 67.1% of USI students have 0, 1, 2, or 3 drinks when going out to party, and 32.8% say they don't usually drink at a party.

Data from the USI Assessment Day survey, 2011-12.
