— More than 30 Raleigh police officers responded early Monday after 2,000 to 3,000 people partied on North Carolina State University's campus.

Police say the party began at the Brickyard, then went to the Bell Tower and spilled out onto Hillsborough Street. About 400 people tried to go downtown, but police stopped them at St. Mary's Street.

Some construction barrels were turned over, but no one was arrested. Students say the event was advertised on Facebook.
