Intercession into collegiate alcohol misuse by the Department of Resident Life (DRL) in freshmen dormitories at one large Mid-Atlantic, diverse, public university was examined. Freshmen dormitory resident drinkers (n = 357), 71% of whom reported alcohol misuse, were surveyed. Student self-report and DRL documentation, respectively, revealed that 6.4% and 7.8% ([Kappa] = 0.77) of drinkers were documented with an alcohol violation, 4.2% and 3.4% ([Kappa] = 0.81) lost housing priority points, 1.4% and 0.6% ([Kappa] = 0.28) were referred for alcohol counseling, and 1.4% and 0.3% ([Kappa] = 0.33) were taken to the emergency room. DRL infrequently interceded into alcohol misuse, perhaps because most misuse occurred off campus. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
