After missing goals set in 2009, NDSU takes new aim at substance abuse
FARGO — North Dakota State University set out in 2009 to curb substance abuse by students, adding more education about drugs and alcohol and more sober events to offer alternatives.
One of the plan’s stated goals was to lower high-risk drinking rates — the portion of students who consumed five or more drinks in a sitting within the last two weeks — from 51 percent in 2008 to 48.5 percent in 2012.
Instead, the percentage of high-risk drinkers climbed to 52.9 percent by 2012.
