Abstract

Hypothesis or problem statement: Every year, California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) students are required to complete the AlcoholEdu online training. This study seeks to identify the knowledge and consumption levels of alcohol among college students at California State University, San Bernardino. Methods: CSUSB students will be recruited at the main campus to participate in this quantitative, descriptive study. The survey will be created using Google Doc and administered electronically to all study participants who agree to participate on a volunteer basis. We will borrow laptops from the John M. Pfau Library and recruit study participants over a 3-day period, March 18-20, 2019. We are interested in recruiting a sample that is representative of the entire CSUSB student population; Therefore, our recruitment will be conducted at 5 different locations throughout the CSUSB main campus. Results or outcomes: We will perform basic descriptive and bivariate analyses using SPSS Statistical Software. Study results will be used to determine: 1) whether the annual AlcoholEdu training increases the students’ knowledge about alcohol and 2) if CSUSB students are more likely to make better informed decisions related to alcohol. Conclusion: We believe this study will reveal that CSUSB students are better informed about alcohol and less likely to engage in risky health behaviors as a result of the annual AlcoholEdu.
