but do they make up the entire spectrum of people? others are a little more
responsable (not me though, heh, although years later i'm starting to figure

i think the fact that you were allowed to have alcohol in your DORM ROOMS speaks
volumes.  i went to PSU.  billions of students, tons of huge frats, and i was
_NOT_ allowed to have alcohol in my dorm room.  but then of you wanted to drink
you went to one of the 200 bars in town or one of the frat houses.

if it worked, then somebody made a wise descicion in choosing that policy.
