Princeton University officials say 13 intoxicated students were taken to a hospital during an initiation weekend for off-campus eating clubs. University spokeswoman Emily Aronson says it's not clear whether the number of students hospitalized for alcohol-related problems is higher than in the past.

Many of the school's juniors and seniors get their meals in the eating clubs, which function a bit like fraternities at the Ivy League school that does not formally recognize fraternities. Last weekend was what the clubs call bickering - a time when new members are recruited and initiated.

One of the clubs held a toga party after a screening of the movie "Animal House."
