Discourage drinking by making it "lame"

August 3, 2007

Alcohol is a hot topic on most campuses, especially at this time of year as schools prepare for a class of young, green freshman striking out on their own for the first time.  A US school is taking a new approach to managing issues surrounding alcohol on campus and is trying to make binge drinking “unfashionable” by sending teachers to join the parties. Faculty will serve as bartenders at dorm events and students will be invited to faculty cocktail evenings.  The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required)
