Did you know that college students are at a higher risk for the development of gambling addiction? In 2008, the FCCG’s Florida college student gambling and problem gambling prevalence study found that an alarming 14.5% were at risk for gambling problems (compared with 7.1% of the Florida adult population) while 2.7% met the criteria for problem gambling – about twice the number found among adults!

A lot has changed since then. In 2023, the NCAA performed a nationwide survey of 18- to 22-year-old young adults, including both college students and those not attending college.

Read the June Web Letter to learn what the survey found about how problem gambling is impacting college students and the resources available to Floridians through the 888-ADMIT-IT HelpLine for anyone impacted.
