Know the precautions of drinking, before it’s too late.
Last week was the 5 year anniversary of the death of Nolan Burch. On Nov. 14, 2014, the 18-year-old freshman from Buffalo, N.Y. became a victim of hazing at the Kappa Sigma house. During a fraternity party, he was blindfolded, handed a bottle of bourbon and pressured into drinking it at a fast pace. After drinking this and more throughout the night, he became unconscious. Other people thought it was funny and started taking pictures, kicking him and dancing around him. An hour went by before someone noticed and decided to call for an ambulance. Unfortunately, it was too late.
