Cynthia Austin

Cindy is a Psychology major who has immense interest in social behavior. It is this interest that has enabled her to do research in the past year and now she is looking at the "Relationship between early exposure to alcohol and binge drinking in adults".

"Most individuals are exposed to alcohol during the course of their lives.  Many people are able to drink alcohol in a "social" manner.  My research attempts to examine differences that may exist between people who do not abuse alcohol and people who do abuse alcohol.  Once significant differences are established between these two groups an attempt to develop educational material based upon the identified differences will be made.  Initially this educational material will be directed toward a college age population.  If success is met at the college level it is anticipated that age appropriate material would be developed for middle school children."
