Objective: To examine "college drinking culture" and explore alcohol use and other variables among a sample of US college students.
Methods: Bivariate crosstabulation and logistic regression analyses were used to examine associations between alcohol use, gender, Greek membership and risk behaviours among a random sample of 823 undergraduates who completed a health behaviour survey.
Results: Respondents who binged were significantly more likely to be male and belong to a fraternity/sorority.
