Link to study please? In most cases online gaming does not "cause" college drop outs, however, obsessive/excessive game playing may be caused by the same thing that causes someone to drop out of college (too much stress/pressure? Unable to successfully manage time? Unable to cope with being responsible for one's self as an adult away from family for the first time? I'm making suggestions, not saying that these necessarily are the case in every situation of every college drop out). Because people who play excessively are often doing so to escape difficult real life situations. Playing excessively is a bad way to handle the difficult situation, but the situation causes the drop out, not the game. She'd be better off saying "irresponsible drinking causes college drop outs"... oh wait... the FCC doesn't control alcohol, so fearmongering about it won't serve her purposes...
