Ramapo College in Mahwah, N.J., has increased fines and penalties for excessive drinking on campus following an alleged sexual assault on Nov. 14. 

The new policy doubles fines for students who require emergency medical treatment for intoxication to $400. Students who hold parties in campus housing where excessive or underage drinking take place will be fined $500 and evicted from campus for a semester, NorthJersey.com reports. 

Currently, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office is preparing a case against five Ram­a­po students for the alleged rape of a 19-year-old freshman who was reportedly passed out in a dorm room after a party. The five students are no longer on campus.
