In their own voices: Appendix B

      Part of the Environmental Scan report includes "Appendix B,"  which is transcripts of comments from JMU students in response to questions about the alcohol culture at JMU.  There were 104 comments. It is clear that JMU students see the JMU alcohol culture as providing free alcohol at many parties and no limits on drinking.  The City of Harrisonburg  provides the "Drunk Bus" for JUM students and it accomplishes two purposes: 1. It  gets students home safely and   2. It encourages students to place no limits on their drinking.  Many students identify problems that occurred while drinking. Students note individual responsibility and responsible choices and also note how very focused JUM social events are on binge drinking.  I have included a sampling of several pages of the comments.
