In this edition of Conversations from Studio B, Kelee Riesbeck talks with Ohio University Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology Thomas Vander Ven about his new book, Getting Wasted: Why College Students Drink Too Much and Party So Hard.

In the book, Vander Ven examines college drinking as a social process, asking survey respondents about drinking to intoxication and roles that fellow students play when drinking in groups.
