Colleges Gather To Discuss Binge Drinking

Oct 9, 2013

Representatives of five Vermont colleges and universities are gathering to talk about solutions to problems created by binge drinking among college students.

The daylong symposium Wednesday is designed for campus leaders, substance abuse workers, community partners and students leaders. It's being held at Castleton State College.

Health Commissioner Dr. Harry Chen says one aim of the conference is to look at programs that are working on one campus that may be replicated on others. He says one successful strategy has been to keep parents involved.
