Project Engage was designed to examine two specific alcohol-related consequences linked with heavy drinking that can have lasting effects far beyond the college years. We are interested in examining behaviors related to drinking and driving, and riding with drinking drivers, as well as various alcohol- and dating-related protective behaviors used to prevent unwanted, forced, and regretted sex among college students in order to assess what predictors appear to have a strong influence on these drinking-related consequences.
