Parties on campus tend to involve less drinking than those held off campus, according to the Dept. of Public Safety and “Drinking at College Parties: Examining the Influence of Student Host-Status and Party-Location,” a recent study from Ohio State University.Partying · Dept. of Public Safety said it rarely receives complaints about on-campus parties because of the supervision of residential advisors and coordinators in on-campus housing, according to DPS Capt. David Carlisle. – Jaspreet Singh | Daily TrojanThe two sources found that hosts of parties on campus consume an average of 4.5 drinks while hosts of off-campus parties average 7.5 drinks.The study also found that off-campus party hosts tend to engage in alcohol-related behavior, such as verbal arguments, physical assault, public urination and spontaneous rioting. Researchers interviewed 3,796 students over the course of two academic years.DPS Capt. David Carlisle said residential advisers keep things under control at on-campus residences and other drinking on campus is in a controlled environment, like Traditions Bar & Grill, where security is provided by DPS.USC owns or manages several student housing properties located off-campus and a majority of the university’s students are 21 years old or older.“We seldom have party complaints on campus. On-campus residential halls have supervision in the form of residential advisors and residential coordinators who usually handle any disruption,” Carlisle said. “Alcohol possession by minors in the residential halls is prohibited and, for those over 21, kegs or other large amounts of alcohol are also discouraged, though rarely a problem.”Carlisle said DPS observations seem to support the study’s results.“Overindulgence in alcohol is often encountered on party calls,” Carlisle said.Justin Waring-Crane, a sophomore majoring in occupational therapy, said he thinks students are more likely to drink more off campus.“Because [students] are off campus, they don’t really feel like there would be as serious consequences because [students partying off campus] don’t have RAs leaning over their shoulders,” Waring-Crane said.Some students, however, said the hosts drink less than the attendees for parties both on-campus and off-campus.“The hosts feel responsible for the safety of the party and choose to be more responsible,” said Ben Badower, a freshman majoring in business administration living on campus.Silken Weinberg, a freshman majoring in communications said the threat of residential advisers appears to be more of a concern when choosing how much one drinks and where to attend parties.“If you’re off campus … it just doesn’t feel like it’s as much of an issue or a reason for you to get in trouble as [it is] in the dorms,” Weinberg said.

The Orange led throughout nearly the entire game and secured its lead despite several Wolfpack runs. Senior Michael Gbinije racked up a career-high 34 points in his final regular season home game and set a career-high with eight 3s.Here are three takeaways from the game.Goodbye to the DomeGbinije said goodbye to the Carrier Dome in grand fashion. After being honored before the game and raising his commemorative framed jersey to the crowd, he finished with a career-high 34 points and shot 8-for-13 from 3, beating his career-high of six, which he set earlier this season against Charlotte.With just a one-point lead midway through the first half, Gbinije canned a 3 from the right wing to put the Orange up by four. He held his follow through and launched an imaginary bow toward the crowd behind the basket. Gbinije later laid in the basket to give Syracuse a 14-point lead and forced Wolfpack head coach Mark Gottfried to call a timeout.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Syracuse needed to squelch N.C. State’s runs, it was Gbinije who seemingly always came through. His 3 with just under five minutes remaining sent the Carrier Dome crowd into a frenzy, gave Syracuse a 64-56 lead and put his stamp on a game that he owned. Then he proceeded to hit another one and set a new career high in points.Roberson remains quietA week after head coach Jim Boeheim said if he had any other players, Tyler Roberson wouldn’t play, the junior forward responded with just four points and three rebounds in 14 minutes. Boeheim stayed true to that sentiment on Saturday. The ACC’s leader in offensive rebounds spent most of his time on the bench, sandwiched in between assistant coaches Adrian Autry and Mike Hopkins.Tyler Lydon played 32 minutes and Dajuan Coleman played a season-high 35 in SU’s frontcourt. The Orange lost the rebounding battle by a slim 38-36 margin against a stout Wolfpack front line that includes BeeJay Anya and Abdul-Malik Abu.Caging the ‘Cat’Anthony ‘Cat’ Barber came into Saturday leading the ACC in scoring with 23.5 points per game but the Orange’s zone held him to just 15.Three minutes into the game, Barber passed down low with two seconds on the shot clock and N.C. State didn’t get a shot off in time. Five minutes later, his jump shot was blocked by Dajuan Coleman. Late in the first half with the Wolfpack down by five, Barber dribbled inside the arc and pulled up, but Frank Howard’s hand was just inches from his face and the shot fell short bouncing off the front of the rim.In the second half, Barber sat on the bench for six minutes. He averaged 38.6 minutes per game, but as Syracuse solidified its double-digit lead, Barber didn’t play as much. After Barber came back in with 9:43 left in the game, he couldn’t crack SU’s defense as N.C. State fell one big run short of a comeback. Comments
