Although current research has studied t he relationship between self-esteem and alcohol involvement among college students, the results have been inconclusive. The majority of studies have used either the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory or the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale to establish the level of self-esteem in their subjects. This study attempted to further previous research by using an alternative measure of self-esteem. Undergraduate female students (under the legal drinking age of 21) were randomly selected from Introductory Psychology classes at a midwestern university. Each subject completed the Self- Esteem Rating Scale (SERS) and the Index of Alcohol Involvement (IAI ) instrument . The scores on each instrument were correlated in an attempt to establish a relationship between self- esteem and alcohol involvement among female college students. No significant relationship was found between self-esteem and alcohol involvement among female college students.
