Age of First Use and Present Use of Alcohol by Undergraduates
This study assessed age of first experimentation with alcohol and its present use and consequences of use by 231 college students at a midwestern university. Early alcohol use was significantly associated with present use of alcohol, negative consequences of present alcohol use, and several measures of adjustment including academic and personal-emotional adjustment.
