dc.description.abstractAlcohol use and abuse among university students is a rapidly growing concern in universities in Kenya. The purpose of this study was to evaluate alcohol consumption among university student athletes and data was collected through self administered questionnaire from (n=207) student athletes. Findings indicated that student athletes consume alcohol due to social and psychological reasons. There were no gender differences in alcohol consumption and student athletes face numerous and diverse problems associated with alcohol consumption. Educational and intervention programmers need to be put in place by sport psychologists and other help providers to student athletes who are consuming alcohol. Future studies should focus on alcohol consumption among student athletes in specific sports, high school athletes and elite athletes.en_US
