Number of High-Risk Episodes in Past 2 Weeks

About High-Risk Episodes

High-risk drinking is defined as consuming 4 or more drinks for females, and 5 or more drinks for males*. A high-risk drinking episode is defined by the amount of alcohol an individual consumes in one occasion due to the fact that on average these amounts will result in a BAC above .08, significantly increasing the likelihood of unwanted negative outcomes to occur.

Of Note:

  • Approximately half of both males and females report not drinking in a high-risk way in the past 2 weeks.
  • Male students who drink in a high-risk way are likely to do so more frequently than their female peers over a 2 week period
  • Females who report drinking in a high-risk way are most likely to do so 1-2 times over a two week period.
