MIT Campus Police received a complaint at 11:40pm on Saturday night about underage drinking at a party in the basement of Bexley Hall. They investigated, confiscated the alcohol and took the names of 18 underage men and women from seven MIT living groups who were among 28 attendees.
The names of the students -- 13 men and five women -- have been turned over to the Dean's Office for possible disciplinary action for violations of MIT policies on alcohol. The students were residents of four dormitories, a sorority and two fraternities.
