How One University Works Creatively to Fight Risky Drinking

Trying to reduce high-risk drinking among college students is a never-ending process. New freshmen arrive, hot spots change, staff members move on. All of that requires nimble thinking. While the University of Missouri at Columbia may not have solved the problem, its progress over time shows how years of dedication can pay off. The campus has plenty of challenges: a hard-partying student body that rallies around athletics and fraternities, a thriving bar scene, and a lot of off-campus housing. In the past decade, enrollment has rocketed from 28,000 to more than 35,000, driven mainly by undergraduates. Most of them live off campus, concentrated in newly built apartment complexes.
