Alcohol served on a college campus

The athletic director of Washington State University refers to the recently opened Cougar Den as merely another “amenity” to draw in more patrons. Sounds like it’s working for their football game attendance.

Certainly in our culture, alcohol is an attraction. But really, on a college campus? I find it disheartening that WSU, well known for its history of alcohol-fueled student behavioral problems, and tragically, many student deaths, finds it even appropriate to serve on campus.

Not a teetotaler, but a concerned observer,
