      Fairfax students learn about dangers of college drinking

      McLEAN, Va. (AP) - College-bound high school students in Fairfax County are getting a warning about the prevalence of binge drinking on campus.

      A forum entitled "The Perils of the College Drinking Culture" Wednesday night at McLean High School will feature screening of a documentary and a panel discussion.

      Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Ray Morrogh and Police Chief David Rohrer will be joined by others, including an emergency-room doctor and the father of a student who died after drinking at a college party.

      Parents and students are invited to attend.
