Comparison of Student Self-Reported and Administrative Data Regarding Intercession Into Alcohol Misuse Among College Freshmen Dormitory Residents
Intercession into collegiate alcohol misuse by the Department of Resident Life (DRL) in freshmen dormitories at one large Mid-Atlantic, diverse, public university was examined. Freshmen dormitory resident drinkers (n = 357), 71% of whom reported alcohol misuse, were surveyed. Student self-report and DRL documentation, respectively, revealed that 6.4% and 7.8% (κ = .77) of drinkers were documented with an alcohol violation, 4.2% and 3.4% (κ = .81) lost housing priority points, 1.4% and .6% (κ = .28) were referred for alcohol counseling, and 1.4% and .3% (κ = .33) were taken to the emergency room. DRL infrequently interceded into alcohol misuse, perhaps because most misuse occurred off campus.
