ADVANTAGES

In 1997, as in 1993, students who did not binge drink but lived in dormitories or fraternities and sororities at high-binge colleges had a greater risk of experiencing secondhand effects of binge drinking than students attending low-binge colleges (). When we divided the colleges into three groups (high, medium, and low) on the basis of the binge drinking rates of students, we found that nonbinging students on high-binge campuses had a 5 times higher risk of experiencing at least 1 of the 8 secondhand effects that we examined. Students living at colleges with medium binge rates had a 3 times higher risk of experiencing at least 1 of these secondhand effects.
