It’s About Time: College Presidents Seek Drinking Age Debate

Drunk Collegians

So this is to become legal huh?

College presidents from about 100 of the best-known U.S. universities, including Duke, Dartmouth and Ohio State, are calling on lawmakers to consider lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18, saying current laws actually encourage dangerous binge drinking on campus.

Supporters of changing the law say college students will drink no matter what, but do so more dangerously when it’s illegal.

It looks like College Presidents are finally getting a hold of the fact that college is college. They are probably realizing that they too got a little nuts back in their day and why hold these kids back?

Drinking ain’t gonna stop. Put it this way. I know I’m allowed to drink and do it way less now. Then again I’m a very old 29 and am extremely boring.

But be that as it may, just remember Deans, Presidents, and all you officials out there. Be careful what you wish for because partying like this will be legal.

    I just turned 21. Before, I would always go to house parties or drink at my own house. Now, I frequently go to bars, where there is much more control to the drinking: bouncers, police nearby, bartenders to cut you off, etc. At house parties, there are none of these factors in place, so it is much more likely kids can get way too drunk, get rowdy and get in fights. People chunging bottles of tequila is always bad, and this just can’t happen at bars. Now I’m not stupid; this will obviously continue to happen, however, if these kids were aloud to go to the bars, they would party at their own places much less often, making the drinking scene generally more safe.

    Except for the fact that bars charge a lot more for their booze,
    which means that now legal 18 year olds will buy cheap tequilla at the liquor strore and go back to their campus housing and still binge drink.

    Lowering the drinking age to 18 isn’t a solution.

    You are obviously not one of the graduates and are/were just a drinker! It’s allowed not aloud!!
