News & Notes: Ten transported for alcohol intoxication on day of Lawnparties

Ten students were transported for alcohol intoxication on Sunday, the day of Lawnparties, to either the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro or McCosh Health Center.

Additionally, one student was transported on Friday and one student was transported on Saturday, the two evenings of Houseparties, for a total of 12 transports over the weekend.

This is an increase over last fall’s and last spring’s Lawnparties Sunday transportation numbers, when seven students were transported to McCosh and UMCPP. The weekend traditionally represents a spike in the number of students hospitalized for excessive alcohol intake, coinciding with the weekend of Lawnparties and Houseparties.

Office of Communications representative Mike Caddell said that he could not conclude that the transportations were related to any specific campus activity.
