Presentation Abstract

Alcohol use and having sex is often synonymous with being a college student. There are public health concerns regarding these behaviors. Certain variables appear to be protective and others put students at risk for these behaviors. The hypothesis that religiosity and parental involvement are inversely correlated with college student alcohol use and sexual activity was supported as was the hypothesis that family conflict would be positively correlated with alcohol use and sexual activity. College campuses should try to encourage continued parental involvement for their students, make available counseling resources to work on family conflict, and encourage religiosity among college students as a way to address alcohol use and sexual behavior.
