How endemic is drug use on school campus?

University sports information director Kenny Klein said cheerleaders will now be required to undergo the same drug testing as other athletes.

Cogswell was found July 28 in Cardinal Towne, an off-campus student housing complex with ties to U of L.

Police said previously they were treating the death as a suspected overdose.

An associate athletic director for student life at U of L, Christine Simatacolos, said the circumstances of Cogswell’s death and the coroner’s report ‘were saddening.’

Adding: ‘We have continued to provide support for our spirit team members as they have worked through their grief.’

Since the revelation of the Cogswell’s death, there have been scant reports as to the degree of drug use she was undertaking, what may have compelled her and or whether there was a pervasive incitement on school campus to partake?

School officials have also declined to tell if there are other issues of drug dependency on campus and whether there are other students and athletes who may embroiled in the young cheerleader’s death. At the time of her death she was found alone.

Since Danielle Cogswell’s death an outpouring of love and disbelief has flooded social media, with the prominent use of #RIPDani.

Cogswell was from Sammamish, Washington, and transferred to U of L from Arizona State last year.

    yes; we should let people be drug addicts, robbers, murderers and thieves because we cant’ cast the first stone.

    Ridiculous

    beyond sad. Young girls are 100 times more wild than in the past and many live double lives. It’s pretty sad.

    And save the “cast the first stone crap”. People need help and the only way to give them that help it to call them out on it, they admit it, and then become whole again. drugs dont make you whole

    and who cares about another drug death, willful misconduct is the official term for her activity. Just glad she wasn’t driving and injured an innocent. Tired of the minority of weaklings getting press, except for the teachable moment it may display.
