A stumbling student became a main concern for Public Safety officers on patrol in Lincoln Hall Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 2:54 a.m.
While in the residence hall, the officers came across a female student lying on the floor. Her speech was slurred and she appeared not to comprehend what was being said to her. The officers immediately called an ambulance.
While waiting for the ambulance, the student became coherent and told the officers that she had been drinking and that she was underage.
Upon arrival, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) assessed the student and determined that she did not need immediate attention but offered trasportation to the hospital. The student declined.
