The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a correlation between social anxiety and alcohol use in college students. College students have a high likeli-hood of drinking due to college usually being a party culture. When you couple a party culture with factors such as stress and anxiety the ramifications can lead to excess alcohol use. These factors are a great reason to study how social anxiety effects alcohol use in college students and who it effects in this demographic. The results of this study will be of great importance to students, parents, and health care personnel as well as important to college faculty.
