Around the state of Ohio, college students are breaking laws. It’s nothing new, but through the development of social media and the Internet over the past few decades it’s becoming a more serious problem.

In college towns throughout the state students are arrested, but where do students run the biggest risk? Is it because they’re underage drinking or using drugs? Are they drinking and driving or are they urinating in public?

My goal is to find out from college students throughout the state why they think college students are being arrested and the biggest problems through the results of this survey:

I’ll cross-reference your public perceptions with data from police departments and the Ohio Investigative Unit to see what the reasons are and whether numbers are significant.
