A survey of cadets at the Air Force Academy released Monday shows significant drinking in dormitories --despite a ban on alcohol. Fifty-two percent of seniors admitted drinking in their dormitories at least once while 38 percent of cadets under age 21 who arrived on campus just this year reported drinking in their dorms.
The periodic survey is drawing more scrutiny this fall because of the academy's sexual assault scandal. In light of the findings -- academy commanders say they will bring in extra staff to patrol dorms. The survey also showed cadets were less likely to follow the honor code the longer they are at the academy.
