The investigation is ongoing. Contact Public Safety at x5029 if you have any information regarding this incident.
A male resident in Conover Hall was transported to a nearby hospital when he started vomiting after consuming alcohol.
Public Safety arrived at Conover at 10:10 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, after receiving a call from a resident advisor, who reported that a student was throwing up. The officers located the room and observed the student sitting on a chair and holding a trash can with two bottles of alcohol on the floor. The student said he had been drinking, but not on campus. The four other male residents in the room also said they were drinking off campus but none knew the specific location of where they were drinking. All of the students were under the legal drinking age and were instructed by the officers to dispose of the alcohol in the bathroom. Public Safety then notified an ambulance for the student who was vomiting. The Lawrence Township Police have charged the ill student with underage drinking and all of the students were charged with a violation of the University alcohol policy.
