Since representatives from the University and student government met with local law enforcement at the beginning of the month, the number of students arrested for underage drinking has decreased. This change came as a result of increased cooperation and understanding on both sides, student body president Catherine Soler said after meeting with representatives from the South Bend Police Department (SBPD) and Indiana State Excise Police this week. “To be honest, they were both as happy about it as we were. I think this has caused a lot tension in the community,” Soler said. “Everyone is just really happy to be moving forward in a productive manner.” From Aug. 21 to Sept. 2, police sent roughly 70 students to jail for alcohol-related charges. Since then, eight students were arrested and nine were issued citations for minor consuming, according to police logs. Excise police issued five citations to Notre Dame students at an incident early Sunday morning at 1632 Turtle Creek Court, said Indiana State Excise Police Commander Lt. Tim Cleveland. Cleveland said these students were issued citations, rather than arrested, because they were cooperative. “From my understanding, there were a lot of people there, but there were few under 21 that were actually consuming alcohol,” he said. “Everyone was cooperative and polite and mutually respectful so that makes a big difference.” SBPD arrested six underage students for minor consuming at a Sept. 10 incident on the 1000 Block of N. Lawrence Street. Officers arrested two and cited four for minor consuming at a Sept. 17 incident on the 200 block of S. St. Louis Boulevard, according to police logs. Cleveland said his meeting with representatives from Notre Dame resulted in greater understanding of the University’s perspective, and he said he thought the University better understood his side as well. “Hopefully we’ve all seen a move in the positive direction,” he said. Cleveland said he encouraged his officers to issue citations, rather than arrest, when underage students are respectful and it is safe to release them. “I have encouraged my officers to use some discretion on whether or not they arrest or whether they cite and release,” he said. “Obviously, we’re not going to cite and release someone who tests .20 because that’s a liability for us to have someone who is under 21 and who is twice the legal limit walking around where they could get hit by a car or something could happen to them.” Nick Ruof, chief of staff, who also attended the meetings with the police, said officers are, in general, using more discretion. “They are using discretion when they start issuing [minors in consumption] or when they approach a si
Siegfried Hall’s 8th annual “Day of Man” will give hall residents a chance to shiver for a cause Wednesday as they brave the cold in shorts, T-shirts and flip-flops while collecting donations for the South Bend Center for the Homeless, Day of Man co-commissioner and junior Thomas Ridella said.“It’s one of the largest community service events that I’ve participated in,” Ridella said. “It’s really cool doing it with all your friends and doing something that’s really different and unique. … We’re just doing our part by taking a day, not even a day, out of our time, which is something small, to make a big contribution.”Siegfried Hall president and sophomore Drew Vista said the event encourages hall residents “to stand in solidarity with other people and bring the cause to the attention of the other students at Notre Dame.”“The most important part of the event is that even though it’s a fun thing to do for a day and even though it’s cold, it’s for a really good cause,” Vista said. “Once we hear from the people from the homeless shelter, it makes us feel that what we did was that much more special.”Peter Lombardo, director of community involvement at the South Bend Center for the Homeless, spoke to students gathered for Mass in Siegfried on Sunday. He said funds from Day of Man support academic and enrichment programs at the Center for the Homeless and will help kickstart a nutrition program initiated this year by juniors Kathleen Anthony and Sienna Durbin.“Thank you for risking a trip to the student health center for the Center for the Homeless,” Lombardo said. “The work we do is pretty much aimed at reconnecting [residents], reconnecting them to the sources of support that we all have.“We’re lucky we have family and friends that we can depend on, and they don’t have them. Some of them don’t have them because they’ve broken them themselves, yes, that’s true, but the Center for the Homeless wants to reconnect them, and any help that you can give goes to that.”Sophomore Jack Szigety said the event also provides a way for Siegfried residents to strengthen their own community while reaching out to South Bend.“The best part of the event for me anyway is the solidarity of it,” Szigety said. “You don’t stand only with the homeless people who don’t have as fortunate a situation as we do, but you also stand with your dorm, your fellow men, to get together for a cause.”Ridella said the initial slogan used for the first Day of Man, “Be cold. Be bold. Be a man,” would be featured on the back of the neon blue T-shirt hall residents will wear to class and outside the dining halls Wednesday. Vista said plans for Day of Man would continue no matter how low the temperatures drop, as the hall typically raises more funds in frigid weather.“I don’t know if there is a temperature that’s too cold,” Vista said. “Probably anything that would be physically unsafe for more than five minutes of exposure would be too cold. Other than that, the colder the better.”Tags: Center for the Homeless, Day of Man, fundraiser, Siegfried Hall

The Wisconsin men’s cross country team gets its final tune-up before the Big Ten Championship meet this Saturday as they travel to West Salem, Wis., to participate in the Jim Drews Invitational hosted by UW-Lacrosse.The No. 2-ranked Badgers are coming off a 5th place finish at the Notre Dame Invitational Sept. 30.Junior Chris Solinsky finished first in the race, capturing the first victory of his collegiate career.Whether head coach Jerry Schumacher sends out his top runners will determine how UW performs this weekend at the Maple Grove Country Club.Unlike many of his fellow coaches, Coach Schumacher does not run many of his top runners in all of the meets the team participates in. At Notre Dame, Schumacher did not run defending national champion Simon Bairu, who won his previous meet at the Roy Griak Invitational.Regardless of whom Schumacher decides to send out Saturday, they will be getting one last chance to compete before the Big Ten Championship meet in two weeks.This meet could be the final test for the Badgers, another chance to get runners experience, or an opportunity to rest top runners.The only certainty is that, come Oct. 30, Schumacher will have his team ready to defend its Big Ten Conference title when they head back to Les Bolstad Golf Course in Minneapolis.On the women’s side, the Badgers will head to Terre Haute, Ind., Saturday to participate in the Brooks Pre-Nationals at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country Course.Coach Jim Stinzi’s crew hopes this weekend will be a preview for later in the season, as the LaVern Gibson course is where the national meet is held.The No. 27-ranked Badgers entered the polls for the first time this season after finishing in eighth place at the Notre Dame Invitational.Junior Katrina Rundhaug led the Badgers at the Notre Dame meet with a 16th-place finish and was followed by freshman Alicia Pabich, who finished in 34th place.Rundhaug leads the Badgers into Terre Haute, where she competed at the national meet last year. This is the last chance for the women to get ready for the Big Ten Conference meet in Minnesota in two weeks.The pre-national meet should give them another opportunity to prepare for the conference meet, where they will face No. 2 Michigan, No. 5 Illinois, No. 10 Minnesota and No. 17 Michigan State.
