College hopes to curtail binge drinking with liquor license

Administrators at Illinois College in Jacksonville, IL recognize that many of their students regularly binge drink. And the concerned college administration hopes to teach their students how to drink responsibly, although their approach to curtailing binge drinking is far from ordinary.

The college has applied for a liquor license for an on campus pub where, if approved, of age students could order no more than two beers with a meal. Officials hope that providing students with a venue for safe and responsible drinking will discourage the dangerous, excessive behaviors prevalent on college campuses, even among students who are of age.

    This is a good proposal and the proposal could be better if the drinking age was 18, as it should be.
