Princeton University Princeton Bans Freshmen From Fraternities, Sororities-8/24/11 “Princeton University President Shirley Tilghman is banning freshmen from joining fraternities and sororities as of the 2012-2013 year after an internal report said the groups encourage exclusivity and alcohol abuse. “
Princeton University Alcohol and college really don't mix “Princeton requires resident assistants to do more dorm patrols, the Daily Princetonian reported. But the task force's approach seems better: having older, nonstudent RAs keep an eye out for illegal booze, so student RAs aren't in the awkward position of policing those they're supposed to befriend.”
Princeton University Where Does Controversy End Up? The Aftermath of Princeton's Op-Ed Fallout-4/2/10 “The op-ed, written by a freshman columnist, sparked a nationwide controversy regarding the role of consent in drunken hook-ups, with Princeton at the epicenter. The piece argued that an inebriated female "knew what would happen if she started drinking"  “We all know that the more people drink, the less likely they are to make wise decisions.  It is common sense."”
Princeton University The nightmare scenario-1/15/10 Fortunately, no recent campus deaths but:  “According to data from the 'Prince' survey, nearly 53 percent of respondents said they had been drunk enough to throw up, but only 7.6 percent reported having gone to McCosh Health Center because of intoxication. Less than 4 percent said they had been to the University Medical Center of Princeton for inebriation.”
Princeton University Cal Poly Brings Back Freshman Pledging After Lobbying-10/15/13 “Princeton students who belonged to fraternities, especially freshmen, were more likely to be hospitalized because of drinking.”
Princeton University Ivies tighten alcohol policies-1/24/13 “At Princeton, a ban on freshman rush that came into effect this fall was indirectly aimed at reducing freshman access to alcohol.”
Princeton University Colleges take sensible steps to combat binge-drinking-9/5/11 Princeton “is the latest institution to ban freshmen from joining fraternities and sororities after an internal report said the groups encourage alcohol abuse.”
Princeton University At Mercer institutions, Greek life takes a variety of forms-10/07/11 “At Princeton University, school officials announced the formation of an 11-member panel of students, faculty and administrators who will hash out the details of a new policy banning freshmen from participating in Greek organizations.”
Princeton University Drinking collaborative establishes guidelines-7/8/11 Representatives from 32 colleges and universities meet in the newly formed Collaborative on High-Risk Drinking, including Duke University ---- More information on the Learning Collaborative at  http://www.nchip.org/
