is this site about?
In the fall of '97 and '99, 4,381 UNC students blew into
a breathalyzer as part of a campus survey. This web site
is about some of the things you showed
us about drinking at UNC.
out that the common belief that students are more interested,
or involved, in drinking than other things is simply wrong...a
demeaning image created by advertisers, TV shows that glorify
excess, and careless news reports that focus on extremes
rather than more complex reality.
the single most interesting finding was this:
Whether it's Thursday, Friday or Saturday
night, 2 out of 3 UNC students return home with a .00 BAC.
We want students to understand this simple fact and to know
where it came from. So we're offering a little cash to students
to encourage them to remember this simple tidbit, which
speaks loudly about students' actual drinking behavior.

pictures of recently enriched winners.
