I wanted to thank you for the editorial regarding student alcohol deaths. I’ve been at Cal Poly for 12 years and have seen far too many students die or suffer injuries as a result of alcohol and other substance abuse. The serious abuse of alcohol is also related to sexual assaults, accidents, and academic underachievement and failure. Cal Poly does extensive programming in the attempt to reduce the high-risk drinking that occurs in this community.

I’m convinced that the best programming is peer-to-peer, and I think your editorial comments on this topic constitute just such an effort.
