Visualizing The Decline Of College Drinking, One New Freshman At A Time

College drinking is on the decline, and it’s been that way for the past decade. That’s according to “The American Freshman: National Norms” reports from UCLA (CIRP/HERI). It found that over the last 10 years entering freshman consistently reported less and less drinking, with the number of students reporting “frequent” or “occasional” beer, wine and spirits drinking dropping by a sizable 25%. Students also reported a large decline in partying, with a growing share saying they didn’t party at all.
