Alcohol & Other Drugs

Kappa Alpha Theta aims to provide a collegiate experience that prioritizes member health and safety. The Fraternity provides opportunities for collegiate members to engage in education, discussion, and risk mitigation efforts related to alcohol and other drugs.

  • Around 9% of full-time college students ages 18-22 meet the criteria for an alcohol use disorder (AUD).
  • Almost 53% of full-time college students (age 18-22) drank alcohol in the past month, and about 33% engaged in binge drinking during that time.
  • About 1 in 4 college students report experiencing academic difficulties from drinking, such as missing class or getting behind on schoolwork.

The above information was reported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), in partnership with College Drinking – Changing the Culture, following a 2019 national study.

Theta-Sponsored Programs

Most college students overestimate how much their peers are using alcohol. Brief, web-based PNF programs are designed to correct individual student misconceptions about alcohol use by using accurate, relevant and targeted data. Each fall, Theta’s college chapters will have the opportunity to participate in a PNF survey, and receive impactful & individual about their alcohol-related behaviors.
