Elon Pendulum on Get REAL

Rebecca Smith, a staff writer for the student-run newspaper The Pendulum at Elon College, recently spoke to Get REAL signatory Justin Peterson about his rationale for joining the group of student body presidents calling for open discussions about campus alcohol policies. When asked to elaborate on his decision, Peterson said,

“The thing that made me make up my mind was realizing (my) role is not to represent the administration, but my role is to represent the students. I feel this is what the students want…I think that alcohol and how to promote smart behavior and a safe environment should always be discussed. Elon is doing a lot in order to encourage smart behavior on campus.”

    The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with an alcohol education program. All university student body presidents should sign onto Get REAL because binge drinking can occur at any university. Students in university must know that binge drinking always comes with consequences which can include alcohol poisoning along with higher incidents of rape. Rebecca Smith has done well by having signed onto Get Real to discourage what causes damage so to encourage smart behavior by university students.
