Abstract

This study examines college students’ alcohol use and how it affects their academic performance, specifically looking at grade point average (GPA). An online survey was given out to male and female students at the University of New Hampshire. Survey questions focused on how much a particular student drank on average, and then asked for a cumulative GPA. The results of the survey show no direct correlation between the independent variable of alcohol use and the dependent variable of academic performance. Further research, including a larger and more representative sample, would improve the findings.
