Campus comes back to life

The reports are coming in on how the return of Northwestern students to Evanston went last week.

The Daily Northwestern says only half as many students were hospitalized for alcohol poisoning during new student week — or Wildcat Welcome — this year compared to last.

And the Daily says both campus and Evanston police spent a lot of time meeting with students — talking about how to stay safe and how to get along with their non-student neighbors.

Meanwhile the Evanston Review reports that the students’ return made local restaurateurs happy as they saw a surge in threesomes at their tables — with parents who’d driven a student to campus stopping in for a meal with their offspring before heading back home.
