‘Alcohol, drug-related incidents reach high’

 

"A water fountain spigot is shown detached from its base after being struck by a pumpkin in the Tuttle dormitory at Goucher College Tuesday, October 27, 2010. Goucher has experienced a dramatic increase in alcohol and drug-related incidents on campus this year."

I decided to post this photograph because it relates to the most pressing issue on Goucher’s campus right now. Through October 24th, 145 alcohol and drug-related incidents were reported by the Office of Public Safety. That’s an increase from 66 through that date last year.

The full story can be read here.

I quickly snapped this photograph while I was talking to some residents of the Tuttle dorm. I’m going to be covering this beat for The Quindecim for the rest of the semester. My goal is to do my part to improve the situation by publicizing the issue as much as possible and providing the campus with consistent and accurate information relevant to these problems.

  1. Billie, this is another terrific issue. Congraulations to you, Ben and the rest of the staff. And I just now saw the photos you shot that ran in the New York Times. Double congratulations. They are fabulous, and you should be ecstatic at having your work showcased in the Times that way.
