UK will revise its on-campus alcohol policy, hashtag party

According to the Herald-Leader, Julius Randall’s favorite newspaper, the University of Kentucky plans to make changes to the no-alcohol policy on campus. Things went dry 16 years ago but now it’s time to liven this party up a bit.

President Capilouto said the details still need to be worked out but the hope is to keep the drinking on campus so it can be monitored, limiting off-campus, booze-related incidents. Those off-campus shindigs will now be under the university’s rule, too, as UK is extending the boundaries of its Student Code of Conduct. (That means you can still get in trouble off campus.)

“Our first priority is the safety of our students and the community we serve,” Capilouto said. “At the same time, we want to build on the strong relationships we have with our neighbors and the broader community. This report, the work of so many people on our campus and in Lexington, is another important step in building an enduring, mutually beneficial relationship of trust and candor.”

Cheers, students.

    “It’s Randle; not Randall…duh.”

    Can someone please explain the “Back To KSR 1995” link at the top of the homepage?

      I second Coal Miner’s request. While we’re at it, can we get an explanation of Matt’s Princeton pullover that he has seemingly refused to take off for the past 3-4 months?

    Can we bring back the Kige as Santa Clause picture to the KSR front page, please?

    UK has an on-campus alcohol policy? Who knew?

    The stop partying after the WKU game last year has boosted student attendance this Saturday at Keeneland. Poor decision in a facebook/twitter world.

    This presence of this particular entry only goes to show how much we really need the Harrisons to decide. Having graduated many years ago, I really don’t care that much whether they drink on campus or not. I was there when the policy changed, but I don’t recall anything actually changing, other than there was now a rule against drinking in the dorm. It just meant that you would get turned in if you didn’t offer your RA a beer.

    Does this mean I can drink beer while tailgating? Oh wait, I already do that.

    It’s a misspelling, not a grammatical error. You’re welcome.

      That’s my moniker for all my KSR posts; it has nothing to do with that particular post, which was rife with sarcasm and was in no way meant to actually serve as a correction to Drew’s “misspelling” of Randle’s name. Thanks, though.

    A man took a drink, the drink took a drink, then the drink took the man.

    We all know that students drink on almost every college and university campus, legal or not, but when you give your seal of approval the floodgates swing wide open, even to many who may not indulge. Alcohol can not be controlled.

    Didn’t some football players get caught smoking wacky but remain on the team, or am I to intoxicated to remember. This is so so funny and such a farce.

    Do they still have cops on bikes riding around giving out drinking tickets

    What do you mean students can now get in trouble by the University off campus?

    This is kind of silly.So now bascially the frats can have frat partys in their houses on campus and kids can get tanked in the dorms.
    In other words, the bike cops can meet their open container quotas without leaving campus! More kids can be monitored and penalized this way. I absolutely guaruntee withint one year after making this a wet campus drinking violations will be up %1,000. IT will be so much easier to monitor frat partys at frat houses, and to bust the “frat” where if it was a state street party the cops would have to actually go find it, and they wouldnt be able to tie it to a frat.
