College & drinking go hand-in-hand, which is also the intensely romantic situation college students find themselves in after a few drinks. But there's more to this time-honored rite of booze passage than meets the eye/lips, and you only have a limited time to get it right. In service of your scholastic self-sousing, here's the how, when, where, and why of college drinking, as told to you by Thrillist's own editorial staff, some of whom actually graduated from a college.
Note: Obviously, we're only referring to 21+ year-old students in this guide, as those are the only people who drink in college. Alright, now that that's out of the way: drink it in, my brothers/sisters in arms.
