They are going Loko, as in Four Loko, an alcoholic energy drink that has administrators concerned students have begun to abuse.
Four Loko mixes alcohol and caffeine, two of college students most favorite liquids, into one cocktail that can have loopy results for the person downing the drink. The product has already been banned on several college campuses because of its potential side effects.
In a flier posted all over campus, UM administrators call the drink "black out in a can" and "liquid crack."
Students have been known to black out or have been found passed out after a night of binging on Four Loko. But that has only fueled the Four Loko craze, UM officials and local liquor store owners said.
"I put it in the cooler, and the next day it's all gone. I double-ordered it for this week," Noel Delvalle, manager of Gulf Liquor, located across the street from the Coral Gables campus, told JustNews.com.
Drinking one can of Four Loko has the equivalent effect of downing six light beers while simultaneously mimicking the impact of drinking two cups of coffee, UM officials warn students in a flier.
The upper-downer effect could give students the false impression that they are not drunk and can drive.
Luckily, there have been known meedical emergency cases on UM's campus yet.
For now, the university is not taking steps to ban the drink, although the fliers appear to be a precursor to it.
