I guess this weekend is "Spring Weekend" -- an annual tradition at the University that peppers the state news each year with some sort of mischief. This year I heard there is talk of calling out our National Guard! Meanwhile the student body prez was warning outside trouble-makers to stay away.
I have no numbers, but reports indicated that not all were students, but a fair percentage were. The University sent out a strong message immediately thereafter that those students would be suspended and/or expelled. If they don't stick to very real consequences for violating the student code of conduct (heck, when I was in college you risked disciplinary action for having a toaster oven in your dorm room) then this will continue. Even drunken students maniacal with frenzy over a big win/loss will probably think twice before engaging in such behavior in the future when they realize what is at stake.
I would like to know where students (in general) get their money these days. There are some who seem to be genuinely struggling to make ends meet and get a college degree, but far too many seem to be insulated financially during their college years -- not sure if there are a lot more financially capable parents willing to fund their kids with no strings attached, or if there is more loan availability with no academic strings attached or what -- but I recall most of my friends in college had some strings they felt on a more urgent basis. These kids seem to think they can do as they please and if the college doesn't adjust their standards to their "needs", they claim learning disability (common, and although possibly legitimate in some cases, there are far too many who don't attend enough classes to know ;)), or, as is the case with this latest criminal behavior, they lawyer up and blame the school for being overly aggressive in enforcing the law.
