Alcohol Action Plan – Brian Hyken

Posted in Uncategorized by com360bu on May 10, 2010

The Bradley Alcohol Action plan was created in 2008 and has been unpopular among students since then.  After some careful studies it has shown that underage drinking tickets have not increased drastically since the plan was created.

Above is a graph showing the underage drinking tickets issued over the last eight semesters.  The information was gathered by the Bradley Police department and includes underage drinking tickets issued by Bradley Police or the State Police (Task Force).  If I had the ability to make this graph interactive, I would make it so the viewer could click on each year and a breakdown of the tickets would pop up.  I would break the drinking tickets down by year in school (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior).  I could also break the information down to whether the tickets were issued by Bradley Police or the State Task force.

Interviewed in the video are Dan Eckert, ’10, Kevin McLelland, ’11, and Peter Stephan, ’10.  I asked them to talk about their feelings on the alcohol action plan and whether or not they feel it is fair to all students.  Eckert has been a member of HEAT for four years and was an ARA and RA in the dorms.
