What I'm Working On Now

Night Shift

Syracuse University was rated the number four party school in the country by Princeton Review this year.

"Night Shift" is a study of the drinking culture at Syracuse University, and how their law enforcement and emergency medical services deal with the sale, use and abuse of alcohol on the university campus.

Approximately 18% of college students reported using false identification to purchase alcohol in a national survey. Two students leave Student's Choice Market on Marshall Street with their haul for the night. They have emptied the beer from the boxes into their backpacks - a common tactic used by underage students to smuggle alcohol into dorms.

Close to 60% of college students drank alcohol in the past month, and 2 out of 3 of them binge drank, according to a national survey. Syracuse University sophomores play drinking games in the early afternoon Saturday at the Castle Court apartment complex. This complex is a popular place for students to party, even though the property management company has reportedly banned students from doing so.

About 20% of college students meet the DSM-5 criteria for Alcohol Use Disorder, according to a national study. Two Syracuse University students drink wine at a house party on Euclid Avenue Friday night. The party was later reported and Syracuse Police Department responded to the call.
