The article in the OD...like ok the college officals are playing stupid...well its down 26% from last year, but did not say how many medical emergencies are down in the college year for drinking. A TON...but when you have money mommy and daddy can have it swept under the table. When someone dies of alcohol posioning the college will be to blame they have let this go on for years. The OD should check with the ambulance services that respond to the college to see if they can get numbers of how many calls over the years have been for that reason. You will never get the true figures from the college officials its all about the money.

Clinton FD and C.O.C. gets called up there a lot. Those kids parents pay a lot of money for their kids to go to school there and donate even more to the college. Does the college give a crap that the kids are out of control?

I doubt it. All those spoiled kids in their Range Rovers and BMW's are worth a lot of money to the college.

1. Do you proofread your posts? What are you trying to say?
2. You sound like you have an inferiority complex.
3. Who cares?

ok who are u talking about proof reading...nothing that was said in the comments was incorrect and if someone spelled something wrong big deal...its bs and the kids and parents and college need to be responsible instead of sweeping it under the table. One of these drunk kids are going to die from poisoning and the college will pay.. so good luck with that one

@Paul.

1. I was referring to your grammar and sentence structure.
2. How is the college liable exactly?
3. How is this situation different from any other college town? If you think what is happening in Clinton is bad try visiting any college town. Wake me up when this happens ---> http://youtu.be/Qf3KswgF9Xw (U Albany)

News flash! College kids drink alcohol. Sometimes they even drink a lot! Only in this godforsaken region would something like this draw media attention.

I think this is jealously of all the local idiots that couldn't actually go away to school, so they try to stop successful young people from enjoying themselves.

@ xipot

unfortunately you dont see the point you are to worried about grammar...like really...also yes all college kids drink but all the other colleges combined in the area do not have the medical emergencies that they have at Hamilton...its a known fact. and everyone knows its because of the money and my concern here is someday there may be a tragedy and hopefully something is done before there is

Boy, you better outlaw alcohol then. That'll teach 'em. Probably should outlaw dancing too.

Oh, and please cite your sources for "its a known fact."

Well I know also that its a known facts so at least its just not one person saying it. Also how would you like it if it was one of your family members dying and you needed an ambulance but they are all tied up at Hamilton College. I'm sure you would be one pissed off person. There are 100 other things to do than go babysit a bunch of kids that can't hold there alcohol.

Your writing in the post makes it abundantly clear that you did not attend Hamilton, or any other college for that matter.

I once heard one of your "educated and successful" Hamilton students use the word "conversate" when he meant "converse". So much for your off-Ivy League educational standards. Color me unimpressed. Pretty pricey tuition to waste on someone who lacks basic skills in his native language.

It's too bad you kids don't have anything to be snooty about.
