Most of the sales took place at three fraternity houses; the students sold nearly $11,000 in drugs, authorities say.
"This is no way to work your way through college," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told the New York Daily News on Tuesday.
Arrested students were: Chris Coles, 20; Harrison David, 20; Adam Klein, 20; Jose Stephan Perez, 20; and Michael Wymbs, 22. All were expected to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon, according to the New York newspaper.
One of the off-campus suppliers plotted to kidnap a pair of rival cocaine traffickers, authorities say.
