What's wrong with this picture?

Boston.com--As a Umass Amherst Alumni, I find this advertisement very disturbing. I was there, I walked the grounds, drank the water, and ate at the Newman Center. There is no way that 3 out of 4 students say no to alcohol. No way. Or maybe everyone they asked lived in Orchard Hill. Now-a-days when I have friends who used to visit me there and bring up old Umass stories, I just don't remember them. Things that I should remember. Like that time I got into a Molotov cocktail fight or that time I almost died. I have no recollection that this stuff ever happened. But I am sure I it did.

So maybe 3 out of 4 students did turn down drinks. But they probable don't remember doing it. Because they were probably already drunk or had a 9:05 discussion the next day.

normal kids that get wasted and dose their friends with acid do NOT fill out surveys about drinking. FACT
