Saturday night I called the University Police at half past midnight and e-mailed my management letting them know that will be how I deal with noise from now on. The barking (yep, they BARK at each other as part of their little fraternity thing) started at midnight. I walked outside and saw about ten young men standing outside my neighbor's apartment on his front porch/balcony carrying on and talking and drinking. His door was shut, so they were seriously just standing outside. It's not a big balcony either (it really ought to only fit about five people comfortably, rather than ten football players packed together).
Now that I have some peace and quiet (for now, at least), it's off to bed I go.
