This article focuses on the hypothesis from Akers social structure-social learning theory and the way it affects the cognitive process of students who drink alcohol. It is where study drinking students in Greek. The main points I withdrew from it is that 98% of both male and female have a Greek drinking lifestyle and based on it I developed my thesis. The same article also provided me with the information on where drinking takes place in Greek and the reason why it takes place.

The author of this article also helped me a lot. It offers important information about positive alcohol expectancies which is described by his as the belief about the effect of alcohol (page 96). From this article, I derive information about drinking conduct and its motives. From it, I developed an understanding of why most students drink alcohol while in the college.

This article provides a review of different articles that describe individual characteristics of college drinking. From the article, I can also understand the family background, personality, and motives of drinking student. The author also wants that future research to be on the developmental pattern of drinking and sociopathic alcoholism. I will, therefore, take advantage of this article to identify personal characteristics that cause drinking alcohol and also begin a research on developmental patterns of students requiring intervention programs.

From these articles, it is easy to understand binge drinking because it provides the best definition of binge drinking in college students. Furthermore, it provides a defense of four measures as the threshold for alcohol-related effects as it is related to driving when drunk and college safety problems. The author of this article explained the importance of altering the five experiences to ensure there is no confusion with other concepts.

In this article, there is a comparison between drinking behavior of underage and college-age student. The article also provides an explanation of other external factors that lead to underage drinking. The author narrates that it is less likely for underage students to drink but in case they are likely to consume more alcohol thus develop more alcohol-related problems. They can by alcohol easily as compared to college age students. From this article, an advice is also given by the author for the need of close monitoring of underage student in most case private places to control their drinking pattern. This article is of great importance in building my thesis.
