SILVA, Érika Correia  e  TUCCI, Adriana Marcassa. Pattern of alcohol consumption in college students (freshmen) and gender differences. Temas psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.24, n.1, pp. 313-323. ISSN 1413-389X.

The entry into the university and the new experiences can facilitate greater consumption of alcohol among students. This study aimed to evaluate the pattern of alcohol consumption among freshmen students, to compare consumption between genders and to identify the groups most exposed to alcohol-related problems. For this, the Economic Classification Criterion Brazil and The Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) were used. Four hundred and seven students were evaluated. Data analysis revealed a risk consumption of alcohol in 17.5% of male students and 8.1% of females. In addition, higher risk consumption was found among those who practice physical activity and those who were from chemistry courses. The results suggest the need to develop preventive interventions at the institutional level, especially for male students, more exposed to excessive alcohol consumption and the risk associated to this drinking pattern.
