Samantha Spady and Bennett Bertoli, that's really all that needs to be said.
We've begun the semester and ended the semester with similar tragedies. We have lost fellow students and as a campus there is no denying that a grieving period has begun. We have had to cover stories about the losses of our friends and we have begun to worry about our other friends.
We should not have to be concerned when we see yellow tape around a house that another student has just left his or her life inside.
Substance abuse has become a problem that can no longer be ignored. These students weren't strangers and this kind of behavior isn't uncommon in the social scene at CSU.
It is inevitable that people will continue to party, probably just as hard as they did before. But the next time you say goodbye to someone at a party before you leave for the night take a good look at their face and if there's any possibility that something could happen, stay by their side and don't leave.
We are all tired and we are all grieving. We are all sad that campus has become a place plagued with regret.
