Located on the eastern coast of North Carolina lies the city of Wilmington. It is also home to four higher education facilities including University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Care Fear Community College, Miller-Motte College, and College of Wilmington. During a student’s time in college, they experience the effects of college drinking, whether they drink or not. Drinking on college campuses are becoming extremely widespread. About four out of five college students drink alcohol on a regular basis. In some cases, excessive drinking has led to deaths, assaults, sexual abuse, injuries, and other problems.
When you have been drinking at a college party, and you get behind the wheel, you are setting yourself up for disaster. Not only are you putting your life at risk, but the risk of others. DWI is a criminal offense and drivers are suspect to jail time if they have been drinking before getting behind the wheel.
In Wilmington, and the whole State of North Carolina, it is illegal to purchase or attempt to purchase alcohol if you are under 21. It is also illegal to possess alcohol if you are under 21. Buying alcohol for minors is also illegal, as well as having a fake ID. If you are caught doing any of these things, you may get a citation which can be very expensive, and if could cause you from getting kicked out of your college.
