Can College Students Afford to Gamble?????

I know that there are a lot of college students involved in gambling, but can they really afford to do so? I would think they are under tight financial restraints and have very little disposable income to waste. I have hear stories of students spending their tuition money or money set aside for food on gambling. I hope they realize that the opportunity they have to get a good education doesn't happen to everyone and that they could seriously affect the future by gambling. Studies show that students involved in gambling receive poorer grades and skip more classes than those that don't. Maybe some information about problem gambling
given to them early in the freshman year could educate them enough to make wise, mature decisions.
