The Department of Public Safety transported seven people to McCosh Health Center or the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro over the weekend for excessive alcohol consumption, University spokesperson Martin Mbugua said.
From noon on Friday to noon on Saturday, four students were transported to the hospital. Three were transported from noon on Saturday to noon on Sunday, and none were transported from noon on Sunday to noon on Monday.
Nearly 1,000 students joined bicker and sign-in clubs this weekend, and pickups and initiations subsequentlytook place at most of the clubs.
Mbugua noted that the numbers represent total transports on campus for the weekend and are not necessarily related to a single activity.
This year’s number is half of last year’s number, when 14 students were transported on the same weekend. The number is still higher than the six transports occurring in 2013.
