University of Dayton racks up large number of alcohol violations

Posted: Updated:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - The University of Dayton says its high number of alcohol violations among students has more to do with aggressive enforcement than excessive drinking.

The Dayton Daily News reports that UD's more than 3,500 alcohol violations over a 3-year period outpaced much larger Ohio schools.

The 8,000-student university's disciplinary referrals for drinking trailed only the much-larger Ohio State University among the state's colleges from 2009 to 2011, the period for which the latest data is available.

School officials say the numbers indicate a commitment "to proactively address violations and take appropriate action to hold students accountable."

The school also noted that comparisons with other universities are difficult because UD has a large number of neighborhoods of student housing that are considered to be part of the "on campus" footprint.
