The Berkshire Eagle is reporting that the College is considering banning hard liquor.

The college administration is considering a ban on hard alcohol after a spike in excessive on-campus drinking.

Some students say that banning alcohol on campus would make the situation worse because it would drive student drinking parties underground and cause those who were sick from drinking not to seek help for fear of being disciplined.

No administration officials are quoted.

How could anyone who remembers what it was like to be an undergraduate think that banning a legal substance (at least for those Ephs older than 21) would be enforceable or effective?

I suspect that the people who run the College are too intelligent to ever try something like this.
