Three University students were transported to Evangelical Community Hospital by Public Safety staff this previous weekend.

A 20-year-old female student was transported to the hospital after she wandered onto 7th Street in front of a patrolling Public Safety vehicle, Chief of Public Safety Stephen Barilar said.

Public Safety officers transported a 20-year-old male student from Swartz Hall, and a male sophomore from the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity house on the evening of Sept. 7.

Public Safety also logged seven alcohol violations by students that weekend.

“It was pretty much a normal weekend here,” Barilar said, in spite of the occasionally troublesome Bid Night and Welcome Night, in which the campus’s Greek community welcomes their new members.

“I think Dean Badal is a big part of that … she did a phenomenal job,” Barilar said, referring to Amy Badal, the associate dean of students and director of Residential Education and Fraternity and Sorority Affairs.

Barilar also personally met with fraternity and sorority leadership prior to the weekend.
