As you are studying for a test, a friend knocks on your door for you all to get something to eat. You had already planned to stay in your room all night to ensure a good grade on the test. You share your intent with your friend who insists that it won’t take long. You agree, since you were already a little hungry. As you all are returning from the cafeteria, another mutual friend invites you all to a small social gathering on campus. You tell both friends that you have to get back to your studying and can’t make it tonight. They jokingly needle you for being a “lame,” in not taking advantage of the college life. After all, you only live once. You quickly make a mental calculation of how much studying you’ve done thus far and how much you still have to do. You say to your friends, “Okay, I can stay only an hour, because I have a test tomorrow.” What turned into a quick meal is now becoming a night filled with social activities. This is part of the social dangers you have to contend with in college.
