Stearns Spring 2008 Great Depressions and the Middle Class: Experts, Collegiate Youth and Business Ideology, 1929-1941. By Mary C. McComb (New York: Routledge, 2006. viii plus 207 pp. $95.00). Languages of class and discourses about class are minefields through which historians take steps at some risk. This monograph by Mary C. McComb on how college youth and experts negotiate their class identity as "middle class" during the economic crises of the Great Depression enters this conceptual quagmire, but although she occasionally comes close to tripping a fuse, she emerges with some illuminating pathways.

Pre gaming is when college students gather in dorm rooms or apartments and drink as much alcohol before heading to parties or clubs. According to Barrett Seaman this is frequently seen in young 18, 19, and 20 year olds possibly for the reason that they're not allowed to legally drink and feel the temptation and need to do it secretly. Seaman shares some of his experiences with drinking in college and mentions how through some of his visits he saw undergraduate students who had done severe heavy drinking which lead to many alcohol poisoning, and even some deaths. For instance, he states he saw a freshman "who had consumed 22 shots of vodka" in a dorm room. However, the author believes that the actual alcohol isn't the problem but instead the problem is the law of 21 being the legal age for drinking.

Some demographic factors are age below 21, male gender, initial years in a university, white race, residence on campus, fraternity membership and lower academic performance (Krzysztof 2). This evidence shows that binge drinking is a very widely spread problem among high school students, not just college students. Many students have drunk alcohol in high school, which is during a time of growth. During adolescence, one’s brain goes through major changes that include physiological, psychological, and social changes (Crego 2).
