EMERG Emergency!

The word emergency comes from the Latin “emerge” – bring to light. College and university policies for the emergency transport of students in danger of being alcohol poisoned could use a dose of light and transparency.

Amnesty.  It’s not amnesty if you can still get in trouble for it. So if colleges and universities really want to encourage students to come forward when they or their friends have had too much to drink or are in medical danger from using illegal narcotics, then they need to consider their entire system of sanctioning.
