still alcohol consumption is the cause of 37% of deaths in America. Why have the deaths by this drug not reduced only become worse with time? In my home town alcohol has already consumed the lives of many. It has gotten to the point that rather then having a guys night out or a games night, friends would rather sit around and drink alcohol all night with new creative games such as “Kings” and “Beer Pong”. Many of my friends have labeled boring weekends as “Sober Weekends.” It has gotten to the point that not drinking alcohol or consuming other drugs is known as a day of boredom or weekend of boredom. We have provided students with more then enough information as to why they should not be con- suming alcohol so I believe there are very little alternatives. What else could they need? Our educational system provides students with facts on how it harms the human body, we provide images of car accidents and statistics as to how many people die because of alcohol consumption, and we also have provided one

million and one other things that they can be doing instead. Could we possibly take another approach? At an early age we should impose that drugs are bad but after a certain age I believe it would be smart to dis- continue the anti-alcohol talk. The more I have been told to not use alcohol use the more curious I have become, so I believe that many students have experienced the same feelings. So if at an early age we have the seed of drugs being bad implanted in our mind it will stick. As time progresses that seed will remain there and stay strong, it will not grow into a curiosity because the talk of alcohol has disappeared it will remain hidden somewhere in the back of our minds as something that should not be done. In addition to this we should focus on providing students with extra-curricular activities that extend into weekends to keep all our students busy and off the streets.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
