Parties and social events are a part of the typical student college experience. However, underage drinking is an issue that every college campus faces. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, alcohol is the most commonly used and abused drug among youth in the United States. At the beginning of the semester three UTA students were issued citations at Kalpana Chawla Hall for consumption of alcohol by a minor. UTA police say that they have not noticed a trend when it comes to this particular issue, but they do take it very seriously. UTA police along with members of the Greek community are also working close with other organizations on campus in an effort to more closely monitor it.
