Campuses in Minn., Wis., see high alcohol arrests

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A study of drug and alcohol arrests on U.S. college campuses brings some unwanted glory to schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Wisconsin schools swept the top three spots in the nationwide study, and the University of Minnesota-Duluth rated seventh.

The Drugs on Campus study examined arrests from the year 2011.

The University of Wisconsin branches at Oshkosh, Stout and La Crosse ranked No. 1, 2, and 3 respectively. All of those colleges had more than 20 arrests per 1,000 students.

The University of Minnesota-Duluth had 14 arrests for alcohol and drug offenses per 1,000 students. Campus police there say the numbers show police are doing their jobs and aggressively enforcing laws.

When the study zeroed in on campus arrests for alcohol, UMD ranked 12th, with Minnesota State University Moorhead listed 15th, St. Cloud State 24th and Minnesota State, Mankato, finishing 27th.
