The present study addressed the frequency and quantity of alcohol consumption among 100 freshmen and 100 senior students representing various faculties at Lakehead University. Results suggested female students' alcohol consumption was more frequent, but not greater in quantity, than male students'. Freshmen were heavier consumers of alcohol than seniors. Reasons for drinking, and the kind of alcohol preferred differed between the sexes. More freshmen than seniors reported they missed class and their grades were affected as a result of their drinking, and that they were nearly always to always drunk when they drank. Anxiety was found to be associated with the frequency, but not the quantity, of alcohol consumption among male and female students. Finally, depression was not found to be associated with students' alcohol consumption patterns.
