As students are preparing for finals, Student Judicial Affairs at Eastern is getting a report card of its own.Although complete numbers are not in for the school year, statistics show some emerging trends including an increase in endangering life and fire safety hazard violations on campus.

During the last school year, there were 21 endangering life violations heard by student judicial affairs – while, from Aug. 20, 2003 to Jan. 31, 2004, almost half of the amount of time of the first data set, there were 39 endangering life violations – an increase of 18 cases for the period.

There has also been a dramatic increase in fire/safety hazards on campus so far this year, according to the report.

In the Aug. 19, 2002 to May 9, 2003 data there were 37 cases of fire/safety hazards, while from Aug. 20, 2003 to Jan. 31, 2004 there has been 70 cases.

According to the report, there could also be a decrease in open house and abuse of computing violations on campus – depending on how the next couple of months pan out.

From Aug. 19, 2002 to May 9, 2003 there were 380 open house violations, while there were only 118 from Aug. 20, 2003 to Jan. 31, 2004.

The same patterns of decrease can be found in the number of abuse of computing cases with 28 in 2002 to 2003 to five in 2003-2004.
