College has been described as an experience in discovery – new friends, ideas, opportunities and risks. For 75% of college students, the fun and excitement of Gambling is part of that discovery process. However, for 6% of college Gamblers, Gambling fun and excitement can transition to unreasonable risk taking that could result in financial loss, school problems, behavioral health problems and a suicide risk up to 15 times greater than the general population. This presentation will discuss risks and realities of college Gambling that, for some, can become something more than fun and excitement.
