Party Pooped at FAU despite 16 cases of Miller Lite
By Kimberly Miller | Friday, October 10, 2008, 12:09 PM




Florida Atlantic University police are busy these days at the University Apartments, where late last month they cited eight men for trespassing after they showed up looking to party.

According to an FAU police report, a resident assistant at the apartments asked the men, who are not FAU students, to leave after he saw them drinking alcohol outside.

The RA told police one of the men raised his shirt showing off what the RA believed was a gun.

Only a cell phone was found when the police searched the eight guys in the parking lot.

But one thing noted in a University Press story, and not the police report, is that the men brought 16 cases of Miller Lite beer to the apartments.

16 cases?

And, they allegedly didn’t know anyone who lives there. So they just showed up with 16 cases of beer _ that’s 384 beers _ looking for a party?

OK, it was a Saturday night _ early Sunday morning actually _ but that’s a lot of beer and only one of the men was old enough to drink it.

Has FAU really gotten the reputation that you can just show up there with beers and a party will spontaneously break out?

Maybe it has following the alcohol-fueled April shooting at the apartments where no one was injured but everybody was locked down for the better part of a day.

FAU officials said there are no discussions about changing the policy allowing students of legal drinking age to have alcohol in their apartments, even if it’s 16 cases of Miller Lite.

Nice…really classy FAU admin we have here, huh? When I attended college, it was expected that I keep my GPA up and graduate because I had to pay my own way and my parents were assisting any way possible. Now, 22 years later I see this…16 cases and FAU admin does not care. Alright, here is my take…fire the disagreeing FAU administration because they are federally funded. Second, yank the student loans and Pell grants of the students who have alcohol on campus…most of the students are minors, anyway. Clean it up FAU. This is probably why you lost your chemistry professor to TX and FAU is not ranked in even the top 100 schools in the nation.

Kimberly,

Apparently you never attended any of these parties while you were in college. A case is 24 beers. Not 12.

So thats 384 beers.

Twelve beers is called a twelve pack, not a case.

384, sorry. I stand corrected, as does the blog.

OK showing up with 16 cases when you don't know anyone is a bit absurd! but for this guy to say yanks kids grants who have alcohol on campus is assanine. These kids are in college, face it buddy these kids are going to drink! It's OK to go to war and kill someone for your country at 18-19 years old, you can vote for the leader of the free world, the most powerful man in the world all at 18 but you can't sit down and have a beer with dinner because you're under 21. This guy obviously doesn't have kids. My parents knew I drank when I was in college and as long as I was responsible they didn't have a problem with it. This guy needs to pull his head out of his rear

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Yeah well there's always one person who responds to a story about a public university and says we're not using our money wisely.

Let's just put it on the table and accept it: you'll never get everyone to agree about how to use money, what should be funded, what shouldn't be.

I don't stress about it, though I don't think enough is said in the media about different sources of money (people out there still think we're going to use money from academic programs to pay for our football stadium) and I also don't think anyone who says Brogan should be fired has any real appreciation for what he's done (and is doing) for this university.

Anyone who says Brogan should be fired is an idiot. They think he's so bad, they weren't there for Cantonese

I'd like to know more about Catanese. He came in after I was gone and left before I got too interested in the internet.  Before the internet was popular and things like this message board came to be, it was hard to keep up with FAU. I had to rely on phone calls for donations to get news. Those didn't even start till the 90s.

I know quite a bit about the corvette. That was a big story and won't go away. What was going on during Catanese's time? I haven't heard many good things. I do know that, what is her name, Coleman, ended the only one with the felony even though Catanese and his wife were all working together to get the $40,000  out of the foundation.

A couple of things you should know about Catanese
  1. He wanted FAU to grow to 45k students… thus inspiring the "open door" policy back in the 90's where the acceptance rate was as high as 75%
  2. He was a proponent of FAU football (his name is on the monument by the Oxley)
  3. He wanted this silly seven campus system that, as Brogan put it, "was a shotgun approach that spread out resources"
  4. He is now President of FIT (Florida Institute of Technology) … or he was, last I heard

Definitely. Are you involved anything? Did you rush, for instance?
