Realizing the Dangers of Alcohol

Wednesday, December 01, 2004

From the Associated Press:

Drinking will be banned at University of Oklahoma fraternities and residence halls under new policies announced Wednesday, two months after a 19-year-old student died of alcohol poisoning.
Alcohol consumption, which is a major problem on college campuses across America despite the lack of mainstream media coverage, is finally being taken seriously by the University of Oklahoma and other big universities.

But is the right solution being implemented? How will banning alcohol consumption in the dorms and frat houses reduce the likelihood of underage alcohol poisoning as minors aren't supposed to drink anyway? It appears the administration is out of touch and longing for practical solutions.
