“One Too Many: What Will it Take?”

Caroline Fassett, Assistant News Editor

Bucknell Student Government (BSG) is hosting an entirely student-led event entitled “One Too Many: What Will it Take?” in its goal to increase campus awareness of the immense alcohol consumption and abuse at the University. The event is co-sponsored by the Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Council and will take place on Nov. 2 at 8 p.m. at the Weis Center.


The program was organized with the purpose of reinforcing “personal accountability as well as to empower all Bucknellians to understand the risks of overconsumption and how to actively prevent it,” BSG President Alex Rosen ’16 said. 

The first part of the event will focus specifically on the aspect of hospitalization.

“[It will detail] the role that students, public safety, the dean on call, and the Evangelical Hospital staff play in saving students’ lives,” Rosen said.

Shortly after, student volunteers will bring the statistics to life, representing the number of students who have been hospitalized due to alcohol consumption. Six hospitalizations alone occurred this past Homecoming Weekend.

Rosen said a wide array of campus life will be embodied in the ceremony, as leaders “involved with Bucknell Student Government, Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, Athletics, Residential Education, and various class years” will look to answer the question of why this is important.

“One Too Many: What Will it Take?” will conclude with a question and answer session, in which Dean of Students Amy Badal and Chief of Public Safety Steve Barilar will be present.
