Returning to campus

How it’s done at UGA:

Police in Athens-Clarke County made more than 70 arrests on alcohol-related offenses during the first weekend of fall semester at the University of Georgia.

Between Friday and Sunday nights, 40 people were arrested and charged with underage possession of alcohol, police said. Eleven people were charged with having open containers and 21 were charged with driving under the influence.

The GaTech students here on campus seem to have been very subdued in their return to school. A little nerdy and very subdued… I suspect that that has something to do with newbies being stacked three to a room and returning students living it up in plush apartments.

    Ahhh, Autumn in Athens. The smell of football, falling leaves, and brown liquor in the air. . . .

    Well, when the Red and Black (UGA’s paper) is publishing stories like their recent drunken-hazy guide to imbibing uptown and a sidebar on how drinking games work,,,not the best example to set.

    How did the paper repond to criticism about these pieces? Inarticulately, I’d say:
