The purpose of this study was to provide knowledge of undergraduate students' patterns of stress and alcohol use. Also, this study sought to understand the experience of a diverse group of students. The study was based on quantitative data from 2 temporal online stress and alcohol surveys. This study used Cohen's Perceived Stress Scale (PSS-10) and the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT). A total of 65 participants completed the PSS-10 and 66 participants completed the AUDIT.
In this study, 32.4% of the respondents identified themselves as Asian/Pacific Islander, and 32.4% of the respondents identified themselves as Hispanic/Latino. The study found that there was not a significant relationship between drinking levels and high stress levels among students. However, the study depicted temporal differences in stress and alcohol consumption. Implications for future research are discussed. Continued research is needed to understand the temporal relationship between stress and alcohol use among students.
