A study published in this month’s Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs found that binge drinking, drunk driving and unprotected sex at 18 heavy-drinking American colleges barely changed between 1993 and 2005. 58 percent of students reported binge drinking in the last two weeks in the 1993 study; 56 percent said the same in 2005.
The SC was evacuated last night at about 6:30 p.m. for a surprise fire drill.
