2 INTRODUCTION [Text on Screen] In the spring and fall of 2003, students from four colleges were asked to discuss the drinking culture on their campuses and to reflect on their own experiences with alcohol. [Student] Why do I drink? Why don’t I drink is the question. [Student] I pound about twelve to fifteen beers. [Student] Half a flask of whiskey, right? [Student] College is sort of advertised as the place that you go, to drink. [Movie: American Pie 2] How about some more of the Stiffmeister’s collegiate concoction? [Student] I had like, seven Jello shots and a strawberry daiquiri. [Student] Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday – people drink. [Movie: 10 Things I Hate About You] I’m getting trashed man, isn’t that what you’re supposed to do at a party? [Student] When you drink, you are drinking to get drunk. [Student] What else can you do for eight hours straight where you can forget about everything else? [Movie: Can’t Hardly Wait] Is this the beer? [Student] It helps you loosen up and talk to people and get to know people. [Student] Everyone is sloppy. I don't want to be there unless I'm sloppy too. [TV: Drew Carey Show] I just realized something. We're sober, but all the women in here are drunk. [Student] I don’t have Friday classes because I know I’m going to drink on Thursday. [Student] Guys like girls who drink beer. JEAN KILBOURNE: Where do students get the idea that alcohol is a necessary part of the college experience? [Student] Guys drink beer, its like this is what you drink.

3 [Student] The puking, the sickness, the dying. [Student] This is the vodka and, just straight cool-aid sugar, mixed together. [Student] The number one date rape drug is probably alcohol. [Student] It is a problem on the college campus. [Student] I think a lot of people are tired of it by this time, they just don’t know what else to do. [Movie: The Real Cancun] Alan! Alan! Alan! JACKSON KATZ: It’s not necessarily the alcohol itself that we need to look at, but rather the cultural meanings that we ascribe to it. [Student] Its like, oh yeah, drink Bud Light, you’ll have a good time, and then you see what happens in real life when you’re at a party with all this alcohol, and its just messy.
