National Alcohol Report Includes SCSU, School Disputes the Findings [AUDIO]

ST. CLOUD – A new national report ranks St. Cloud State University high for the number of alcohol arrests.

The website Rehabs.com puts SCSU #24 for the most on-campus alcohol arrests per 1,000 students.

However, SCSU Assistant Dean of Students Jennifer Matzke disputes the report.  First, she says they only list schools with enrollment above 5,000 students.  Also, she says their term “arrests” isn’t accurate.

Matzke says campuses could drive the numbers up-or-down depending on their own level of enforcement.

Matzke says SCSU has a strict enforcement policy, which may be driving up the numbers.  Matzke says they offer an alcohol impact class, and also partner with the city for a diversion program which gives students who are cited for underage drinking a chance to have the citation removed from their record.

Matzke says SCSU is actually below the national average now for high risk drinking.

The Rehabs.com report also includes the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Minnesota State-Mankato, and the University of Minnesota.  The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh was number one.
