college campuses and alcohol

so over the weekend Jen very casually mentioned -- once again -- that there is almost always alcohol at all the parties.


when I was in college, the drinking age was 18, and there was a lot of drinking on campus. the drinking age is 21 now, but otherwise...times have not really changed, have they?

so periodically I discuss drinking with my daughter....how there's a difference between having a few drinks and getting blitzed, how "don't drink and drive" is sound advice....how it's good to "buddy up" with other girls to make sure everyone gets home from the party...

I'm not under any illusion Jen won't drink. I just want her do do it sensibly.
