Kelee Riesbeck talks with Thomas Vander Ven

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.
