Acculturation is a general term use to describe cultural change or cultural shock, of people or person that are not of the same cultural background. There are numerous ways acculturation can affect or shape the life of people, but I choose to talk about alcohol consumption among Nigerian students in Kuching. I embarked on interviewing 10 Nigerian students studying in Kuching by using effective qualitative method such as semi-structured and in-depth interview. All my respondents are Nigerian male, and are second year students and above. In this study, the focus or main central issue is that alcohol, impacts negatively on students' academic performance. The more consumption of alcohol intake, more drastic impact it has on their academic performance. However, based on data collected, this study discovered that most of the respondents view the act of alcohol consumption differently. Some feel the intake of alcohol is to calm their nerves or relief them off stress, while other feel otherwise. Hence this study focuses on alcohol consumption among Nigerian students in Kuching and to reveal the real situation or reason why they partake in alcohol activities.
