The current study utilized a prospective design to explore the relationship between alcohol use, athletic participation, fraternity membership, early sexual experiences, and the perpetration of verbal, physical, and sexual aggression among college men over a 3-month interim (N=425). A series of hierarchical logistic regressions explored the relationship between these risk factors and subsequent perpetration of violence. Previous perpetration of verbal, physical, or sexual aggression was the only predictor of perpetrating that form of aggression over the follow-up. Given that the study of aggression is typically retrospective, and rarely encompasses various types of violence, implications for future preventative efforts among college populations are discussed.
