Average Drinking Rates Per Day

About Average Drinking Rates Per Day

These graphs illustrate on average how many drinks and for how long in hours students drink each day of the week. The bottom graphs are broken out by class standing.

Of Note:

  • While some level of drinking occurs every day, the majority of drinking happens on Fridays and Saturdays, with a significant amount also occurring on Thursdays.
  • With rates extremely low the first half of the week, a slight increase appears on Wednesdays driven by non-First Year students.
  • First Year students recorded the highest average amount on Saturdays, but have the lowest overall rates outside of the weekend.
