The Maroon A Loyola Tradition Since 1923 • "For a greater Loyola" V 01.90, N0.21 www.LoyolaMoroon.com Friday, April 20, 2012 College binge drinking on the rise By SHANNON DONALDSON Staff Writer If that one daiquiri you plan to drink at the Fly quickly turns into a night of tequila shots and keg stands on an average weekend, you may fit the standard definition of a binge drinker. And you aren't alone. According to recent studies, college students are binge drinking more often and consuming more drinks when they do so. Studies by the Center for Disease Control released in January 2012 found that the people aged 18 to 24 who are engaged in binge drinking are doing so five to six times a month on average. The CDC defines binge drinking as consuming four or more drinks for women and five or more drinks for men in a span of about two hours. However, the study found that college-age binge drinkers were downing an average of nine drinks per occasion. In Louisiana and Mississippi, binge drinking is actually less common, but students who are binge drinking are consuming more in one occasion than their counterparts in other states. The excessive use of alcohol and consequently EMT callouts and transports to hospitals has seen a steady increase in the last few years (at Loyola)," said Patrick Bailey, director of Public Safety for the University Police, in an e-mail. Craig Beebe, Residential Life director, sent an email to the Fraternity gets put on suspension by Nationals By HANNAH lANNAZZO Assistant News Editor The Loyola chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is currently suspended from campus. According to Tyler Boggess, Sigma Phi Epsilon National Headquarters East Chapter Services Director, the Louisiana Gamma chapter of Sig Ep is currently under investigation. Boggess said the reason for the investigation could not be explained until after the investigation is complete. Jenna Rae Vercillo, assistant director of Student Leadership at Loyola, and Heather Roundtree, director of Co-Curricular programs, said that the university is complying with Sig Ep's national headquarters. "National took swift action and immediately sent a cease and desist order to the chapter, which put a hold on all activities," Roundtree said. Vercillo said that the national executive board will make a decision, and depending on what that decision is, the university may even take further action. Vercillo and Roundtree also said that any concerns and questions about the pending investigation must be addressed with the national headquarters because they are the ones who initiated the investigation. Members of Sigma Phi Epsilon declined to comment on the issue.

The Standing Council for Academic Planning approved the Loyno Translation Interpretation Program at its April 10 meeting. This program is aimed to satisfy the need of translators and interpreters regionally and nationally, according to Uriel Quesada, director of the Center for Latin American Studies. The program offers three options for a certificate, which are: a certificate in Medical Translating and Interpreting, certificate in Legal IVanslation and Interpreting and a certificate in Medical and Legal Translating and Interpreting. The length of the coursework varies with each certificate. The Loyno Translation Interpretation Program is a collaborative effort between multiple departments according to JoAnn Cruz, dean of the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences. "(The certificate) will be supported by the College of Humanities and Natural Sciences, the Center for Caribbean and Latin American Studies and the Office of Professional Studies," Cruz said in an email. Quesada presented the idea for the certificate along with Lisbeth Philip, visiting assistant professor of languages and cultures. Quesada said he believes there is a local, regional and national need for qualified translators and interpreters.
