UI, WSU Looks For Ways To End Falls

While officials are looking at what they can do in response to the falls that have injured several Palouse college students this semester, some said preventing such accidents is ultimately a matter of altering dangerous behavior. "Obviously, we need to do more with them to help them think through what are the possibilities for accidents," said Washington State University Dean of Students Melynda Huskey. "This is a challenging age. Young men in their late teens and early 20s are not always the best assessors of personal risk."Pullman Mayor Glenn Johnson said he agrees that student behavior needs to change, but he will still start a discussion with the city's department heads next week to brainstorm ideas/Joel Mills, Lewiston Tribune.
