PONCE GUERRA, César Eduardo  and  REYES VALENZUELA, Carlos. Consumo de alcohol en estudiantes en tres facultades de la Universidad Nacional de Chimborazo. Rev Eug Esp [online]. 2018, vol.12, n.2, pp.42-49. ISSN 2661-6742.

A descriptive, crosssectional study was carried out in order to analyze alcohol consumption in Universidad Nacional de Chimborazo, in the city of Riobamba. 512 students participated from the faculties of Health Sciences, Political Sciences, and Engineering, in the year 2017. Among the results obtained, a high rate of alcohol consumption is observed in the university population, in which 70.2% have consumed alcohol at least once in their life, the Faculty of Engineering and the male gender were the highest level of harmful consumption and depen-dence. The low social class presented a high level of harmful consumption, and the high social class showed a high risky consumption and alcohol dependence. This study proved that alco-hol consumption was generally associated with university students. So, it constitutes a problem that brought negative consequences not only for the student who consumed, but also for his family and his entire social group.
