Alcohol-related incidents drop at BSU: Officials, students say more awareness on campus after tragedy last winter


BEMIDJI—Alcohol-related incidents at BSU have dropped this year as the school has emphasized student safety and campus togetherness—a trend that will hopefully prove permanent, school officials say.

Without releasing exact numbers, the school did confirm that reports of incidents involving alcohol are down about 25 percent compared to the same time last year. This includes incidents both on and off campus, an early but telling sign that the school is making progress on a problem that took the life of a student in December 2014, and nearly took another a month after that.

"The change is glaringly noticeable," said Randy Ludeman, university conduct officer. "Having done this for 30 years, that is a drastic change. But we haven't changed a whole lot. We've always focused on responsible use and the law. We were pretty aggressive to begin with.
