- The Effects of Social Surroundings on Views on Alcohol and Drugs How do one’s social surroundings effect their views on alcohol and drugs. Through a correlational study I hope to find out in what ways students are effected by their surroundings, and if it is truly this that makes them do things or if it is their own will. For example, say as a Freshman Johnny feels that “partying” is bad and he never wants to do it. By finding out why he feels this way and what types of activities he is involved in the research will be able to correlate that with the way he feels about “partying” 2-3 years later....   [tags: Papers]
