Reported that University officials were unresponsive as to "what action the campus might take against the Greek community in the wake of Saturday's killing of a top nuclear engineering student outside a sorority house. Christopher was stabbed in the chest by Andrew Hoeft-Edenfield, a 20-year-old Berkeley man, during a brawl involving about 15 drunken, unruly students, possibly fraternity members, and one or two of Hoeft-Edenfield's friends, police said."
"Although police have said alcohol was involved in the fight, they have not said there were parties at the sorority house or the nearby Sigma Pi fraternity, where the victim was a member." '

Local Police Work to Curb Students' Alcohol Use
By Ashley Trott
Daily Cal Staff Writer
Reported of efforts in reaction to how alcohol use contributed to the fatal stabbing included the following:
"A survey done last fall by California Safer Schools Coalition, a research
organization, found that UC Berkeley undergraduates estimated that 36.5 percent
of their fellow students drink one or two times every week, compared to the 26.5
percent that actually do.
The same survey found that 63 percent of UC Berkeley undergraduates drink once a
month or not at all."
