college statistics

Here's a few statistics I found interesting:

One in four college students has an STD
44% of students attending 4-year colleges drink alcohol at the binge level or greater. However, about half (49%) of American college students don’t drink alcohol on a regular basis.
1,700 college students die each year from alcohol-related injuries.

Every year, 599,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are unintentionally injured under the influence of alcohol, while more than 696,000 students between the ages of 18 and 24 are assaulted by another student who has been drinking.

Each year, college students spend about $5.5 billion on alcohol.
Student loan debt will hit 1 trillion in 2012.
Nearly 1,100 suicides will occur on college campuses this year.

Nationwide, 40 % of students (and over 60% of students from urban districts) are required to take at least one remedial course upon entering college. Most students enrolled in remedial college course work had good grades in High School. In California, 84 percent of students enrolled in community college are required to take remedial English coursework.
