This page’s additions will depend on media reports, and so this site is at best an approximation of how many collegiate deaths and close calls are rooted in alcohol as a primary cause. BAt any rate, hopefully this page will spark some awareness on the part of USA students. This list will include all incidents  where students in clubs or sports die or are treated for close-call alcohol poisoning. These have been ruled non-hazing. Thank you for reading–Moderator Hank Nuwer.
