Tufts students reprimanded over behavior at Boston hotel

In a scathing letter to the Tufts University community, Bruce Reitman, dean of student affairs, reprimanded students who were hospitalized, threw up, and urinated in the lobby of the Westin Copley Place Boston Hotel during the annual Winter Bash.

In the letter, published Tuesday in Tufts Daily, Reitman said 15 to 20 students were hospitalized for intoxication.

Tufts officials could not be reached for comment Tuesday. Westin Copley Place Boston ­referred questions about the event to Tufts.

In the letter, Reitman said the blame should fall not only on the students who were hospitalized, but also on their friends who allowed them to drink too much.

“I am referring also to the myriad students who threw up all over the place and everyone who thought it was OK for the hotel staff to clean up the mess,” Reitman wrote. “And I’m referring to the male student and the female student who decided that urinating in the middle of the lobby was OK.”

In his public letter, Reitman said that students and staff who plan future school events will seek to “address the evidently widespread belief that Winter Bash is a time to get out­rageously drunk and go to a classy Boston hotel.”
