Ariz. regents cite concerns about student safety

The board that oversees Arizona’s state university system is expressing concern about student safety in the wake of dangerous and criminal activities that include alcohol-related injuries, sexual assaults and at least one fatality.

According to The Arizona Republic, a letter sent by the Board of Regents to national headquarters of dozens of fraternities and sororities asks what they’re doing to prevent problems.

Alcohol-related incidents include several at Arizona State University, including one student’s death, another’s near-death from drinking and burns suffered by two young women when a bottle of alcohol was thrown into a bonfire.
