So, here's a little known but shockingly horrific statistic for you: According to a paper published in 2009 by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 1,825 college students ages 18 to 24 died from unintentional alcohol related injuries in 2005. Let's put that number in more personal terms. Assuming that this number has not trended down in the last three years, and there is no reason to believe that it has, during this academic year approximately 1,825 families will send their child to college and will never see that child alive again because of alcohol. Wow.
