Binge drinking rates by Vermont college students remain among the highest in the country.
Students cited for alcohol-related offenses at Dartmouth College must enroll in a program that pairs an online self-assessment with counseling. The program is also open to students who are interested in cutting down on their level of drinking. This is just one way schools and states are working to reduce binge drinking.

Vermont Deputy Health Commissioner Barbara Cimaglio joins local college officials to discuss how severe the binge drinking problem is in our area and the efforts being initiated to rein it in.

Also on the program, as the groundbreaking of the St. Albans Wal-Mart draws near, real estate developer Jeff Davis discusses his vision for Vermont's commercial development and the 20-year process that it took for the retail store to become a reality.
