Connecting Matters. Where do you draw the line?

To succeed at Princeton, you set limits for yourself all the time. You limit your time on Netflix or the time you spend in meetings. Alcohol is no different: you need to decide for yourself where you draw the line.  

When it comes to alcohol, most people do set limits for themselves. For example, among Princeton students*:

  • 28% of undergraduates are current non-drinkers including 18% who have never used alcohol.

Of the undergraduates who do drink,

  • 63% reported 4 or fewer drinks the last time they drank
  • About 22% reported only drinking 1 or 2 days out of the past 30 days and another 23% reported only drinking 3 to 5 days.

Whether you choose to drink occasionally, regularly, or not at all, you’ll find helpful tips on these pages:
