Lots of reasons,

Some factors it is a college town with a very large Student population. There are about 15,000 students at NDSU alone. In a city of about 100,000. there are over 15,000 young adults away from home and their first time being on their own. Binge drinking is going to happen.

Then there is the long drab winter. The most common activity becomes bar hopping.

then there is a very large young population About 60% of the population is between the ages of 20-34 About half the population is unmarried Income is a bit high and there is little to spend it on.
