New Mexico State University Our view: Understanding the dangers of alcohol-8/26/10 “Students and other young adults should not just shrug off the dangers. Understand they are real. Do you care about your friends? Don't let them do stupid things. Responsible adults, if they hear of such behaviors, should not let it slide by. Confront an underage person who's talking about drinking. That begins, of course, at home, with parents teaching their children about the risks of drug and alcohol abuse. But ultimately, it is the decision of the person taking the drink”
New Mexico State University Alcohol use sends NMSU student to hospital-8/24/10 “Classes hadn't even started when a New Mexico State University student had to be rushed to the emergency room for alcohol poisoning.  Ten teenage students were criminally cited for drunkenness on campus - one student was cited twice in just the first week of school, according to NMSU police records.”
