Alcohol Use and Academics

Do your choices make the grade?

50% of college students who choose to drink, spend more time drinking than studying


You might be surprised to learn that if you are a woman who drinks more than four drinks, or a man drinks more than five drinks in one night your quantities meet the criteria for binge drinking. Yikes!

For some, this doesn't seem like a lot of alcohol. However, research on academic performance shows students who drink this much (or more) 

  • Have higher rates of class absences
  • Have lower GPA's
  • Spend less time studying

Consider drinking OneLess if you are among the...

In October 2012, Bentley students offered feedback on their OneLess goals. Many cited academics!
