'BORG' Challenge Hospitalizes Nearly 50 College Students
March 17, 2023
College kids are partying with gallon-size jugs that they call “BORGs,” which stands for “blackout rage gallon.” They purchase gallon-size water jugs then add alcohol, a color sweetener and an electrolyte supplement to help avoid hangovers. However, too many of them are winding up in the emergency room. Forty-six University of Massachusetts Amherst students were hospitalized during a pre-St.Patrick's Day “BORG” challenge.
