Florida Gulf Coast University Does FGCU Have a drinking problem-9/16/14 “Roughly 1—in—5 FGCU students living on campus have been disciplined for alcohol violations on campus.”
Florida Gulf Coast University Advocates push policy not penalizing college students for reporting alcohol emergency-10/20/11 “"Campuses with significant medical problems with binge drinking have tried this," he said. "We are not immune to this — no campus is, no community is really. But we don't have the same kind of drinking culture. Not to that degree."”
Florida Gulf Coast University Few FGCU students face arrest on campus for booze, possessing pot – POLL-4/9/11 “Housing staff can issue alcohol-related violations for drinking in dorms even if a student is of age. For example, having empty containers or beer kegs as furniture constitutes housing violations but not criminal charges.  But students caught drinking underage in an FGCU dorm don’t always face the jail time or fines students run into off-campus.”
