Tom Fudge: San Diego State University is back in business. Fifty-five hundred students are in the new freshman class. That's a record, by the way. And the total enrollment of the University is expected to be about 35,000. For people who live around campus, this is not necessarily good news. Some of them fear more students means more loud parties at mini-dorms.
Mini-dorms are former single-family homes that have been converted to student rooming houses. They've created some problems in the college area with loud parties. In fact, the city has a pilot program in place in which people at those parties can be fined $1,000 each for major disturbances.
