As parents we send young folk to college to grow and learn. Naiveté and alcohol lay in wait as tinder for trouble. It's important to understand this and examine it, and find ways to stem it so that there are less victims and less young men whose futures have been derailed by an ill-advised, momentary capitalization on impulse.

Though we prefer to stick our heads in the sand and ignore the inevitable, it is time to get them ready for the tiny living spaces that will be their homes away from home.
