The purpose of this study is to investigate behaviors in relationships, alcohol use, and motivations to drink alcohol. You will be asked several questions regarding your preferences and behaviors in relationships, alcohol use behaviors, and reasons you consume alcohol. In addition, some demographic information will be collected (e.g., race/ethnicity, age, gender, etc.). The survey is an anonymous survey, and all responses will be kept on a secure computer. The survey takes about 20-25 minutes to complete.
One benefit of your participation in this study is that it will help us understand how relationships affect alcohol consumption and reasons for drinking. Alcohol consumption and reasons for drinking alcohol are both important issues for college-age adults.
Two requirements of this study are that you are at least 18 years of age or older and have consumed alcohol to participate in this survey. If you are not at least 18 years old and/or have never consumed alcohol, please do not participate in this survey.
