Going to college can provide students with the opportunity to abuse alcohol, but new research from Pennsylvania State University finds that, long term, going to college does not increase and may decrease the chances that in adulthood someone will regularly abuse alcohol. The research -- being published in the journal Structural Equation Modeling -- looks at characteristics of various cohorts of adults and then compares those who did and did not go to college.
