Partying Triumphs Studying

On average, college freshman spend a longer time drinking than they do actually studying. Part of the college experience is drinking and going to parties but based on a survey distributed to more than 30,000 freshmen across 76 campuses students spend over 10 hours a week drinking and only 8.4 studying. The survey also points out that the lowest of all the activities students are involved in only 2.2 hours are spent actually working for money (Marklein 2009). Drinking will never stop amongst college students but many students are choosing something destructive over what they really should be going to college for. I think it is okay to go out and party with friends but you also need to prioritize your activities and choose between what is a necessity and what is a wanted.
