(MyFoxBoston.com) -- Tufts University is conducting a multi-department review after 15 to 20 students spent the night with paramedics following the school's annual Winter Bash. This year, the Westin Copley Place Boston hotel said they saw an extreme amount of alcohol-related incidents versus years past.
Bruce Reitman, Dean of Student Affairs at Tufts, sent an email to The Tufts Daily expressing his concerns.
"I am referring also to the myriad students who threw up all over the place and everyone who thought it was okay for the hotel staff to clean up the mess," he said in his email.
One male and one female student reportedly openly urinated in the hotel lobby, and while more than a dozen others spent the night in the medical triage room with paramedics. Many others threw up in the lobby and hotel rooms.
According to the school's newspaper, this review has been underway since the beginning of February and will likely result in many logistical changes. Multiple school departments are all working together to re-evaluate the purpose of the event.
"There is strong consensus that the planning for any future event has to address the evidently widespread belief that Winter Bash is a time to get outrageously drunk and go to a classy Boston hotel," Reitman said in his email.
Results from the review will not likely be made public until late February.
Programming Board co-chair Christopher Blackett, a senior, told the newspaper that the event will not be cancelled completely, but it could be modified. The school's annual Fall Ball is now subject to review and could see changes as well.
