With the Fall semester just days away, college students have returned to the Madison area. And on September 2, 137 of them were cited for underage drinking. Freshman enrollment at UW-Madison is up 16% compared to last fall. A record 8,465 freshman students will begin studying in just a few days; many of them have already moved in. Last Thursday night, police raided a downtown bar and asked 143 people if they were 21 years of age — only six of them were legally old enough to drink, according to Madison police. The 137 people who were not of age will face underage alcohol consumption and false identification citations.
