"Where the Folks Are"
By THOMAS BARTLETT
"Spring break is all about beer bongs, wet-T-shirt contests, and regrettable intimate encounters, right?
Maybe not. A new survey found that only 33 percent of college students whoop it up at the beach, while 70 percent stay at home with their parents (3 percent, presumably, take their parents to the beach). The survey was sponsored in part by Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc. . . .
The survey, conducted online in February, found that 68 percent of students who did party during their vacation set limits on how much alcohol they consumed. . . .
Among students who chose to drink, 84 percent said they consumed alcoholic beverages in moderation. . . .
Over all, according to a news release, the survey's results are proof that college students are behaving responsibly during spring break, and that all this talk about debauchery is so much hype. . . .
