'tone it down' on game days -

At fireside chat,
students question
campus safety
By PAIGE PEARCY
Daily StaffReporter
Porch banisters strewn with
red Solo cups, dancing students
on the roof and beer bongs dan-
gling from third floor windows
are not uncommon sites for pass-

ersby walking to Michigan Sta-
dium on Football Saturdays.
While that scene occurs every
game day, E. Royster Harper,
the University's vice president
for student affairs, told students
yesterday that the behavior does
not accurately -reflect who Uni-
versity students are.
"I think there is quite a lot
of concern around getting to
the games healthy and safe and
sober," Harper said.
Harper expressed her sen-

timents about student safety
before footballigames at a fireside
chat with University President
Mary Sue Coleman and about 40
students in the Kuenzel Room of
the Michigan Union yesterday.
Harper addressed the issue in
response to a question from LSA
senior Sloane Wolf who asked
why it seems police are breaking
up Football Saturday pregame
parties more often this year than
they did in the past.
