Trinity College Big changes to off-campus party policies-9/10/16 “The Safer Parties Initiative seeks to reduce harm in four key areas: over-consumption, drinking and driving, violent behavior, which includes fights and sexual assault and neighborhood disturbances.”
Trinity College Dozens Injured In Porch Collapse At Party Near Trinity College-9/11/16 “Twenty-eight students were taken to area hospitals when porches collapsed on top of each other at a three-story house on Broad Street near Trinity College during an off-campus party.”
Trinity College Colleges Try To Discourage Binge Drinking Among Freshmen-9/20/10 “Another approach that can help is called "social norming." That approach addresses the idea that many students come to college believing that everybody is drinking all the time, so they expect they will, too. However, statistics show that not as many students are drinking all the time as many believe.”
Trinity College  Study Looks At College Kids, Binge Drinking-4/3/11 Study at Trinity plus two other schools—“Among the findings that have come out of the BARCS study so far:-----•Binge drinking hurts academic performance the first year of college but after that has no effect.----•Social drinkers do better on memory tasks than their teetotaling classmates, but the binge drinkers do worse than both.-----•Female students are more likely to take part in binge drinking than males. Raskin, though, says this might in part be due to terminology. In the field of alcohol research, "binge drinking" means five drinks on one occasion for males and four drinks for females.”
Trinity College Trinity Shuts Down Alpha Delta Phi-5/10/12 “Trinity had placed the 53-member fraternity on probation and ordered it not to conduct any campus parties or serve alcohol to other students, following an alleged hazing incident last fall.”
