Question of the Week: How Does Drinking/Partying in the US Compare?

We’re launching a new feature here on the Student Union – “Question of the Week.” The idea is that each week we’ll ask a question here and on Facebook about a topic related to studying in the U.S.  We’ll discuss it (using the comments section) over the course of the week, and then at the end of the week I’ll use our discussion and contributions from our bloggers to write a blog post on the topic.  Sound good?

This week’s Question of the Week:

A recent study showed that U.S. students who study abroad consume more alcohol while overseas than they did at home, and continue these heavier drinking habits once they return.

Do you think it is the same for international students who study abroad in the U.S.?  How do you think drinking and partying on U.S. campuses compares to colleges in your country?  Do U.S. students party more or less (or differently?) and is that a good or bad thing?

Discuss in the comments section…
