I have a friend who went to the hospital on D-Day after having too much to drink. This week, she received a notification from the university that she has to meet with various authorities to discuss her actions. It took some intelligent friends to realize she was in trouble, and take her to the hospital for medical assistance. However, if the university has a policy where the students who receive medical aid and are underage get in trouble for their actions, eventually someone will not seek medical attention when they need it. By far, she was not the only underage student drinking on D-Day. But to single her out because she needed help is certainly not the right message to send to the student body, while looking the other way when the festivities take place. And then the university will have a much bigger problem on their hands than underage drinking.

Thank you
