UO Freshmen to be Made Aware of Alcohol

In a possible effort to prevent further fall rioting, UO will require incoming freshmen and transfer students under 21 to take an online alcohol education class. This class, which is used at over 500 other colleges and universities, is aimed at making students aware of the effects alcohol will have on their bodies.

As someone who has taken two of these classes and found that they simply made me crave a strong vodka tonic, it seems unlikely that these will have any effect of students who desire to drink.

What do y’all think? Would an alcohol class have deterred you from getting shitfaced?

    Nope, not a chance. And, I think the administration knows it, too. They are of the opinion that kids will act like kids, and do whatever the fuck they like. At least this way, they can say that they tried – so as to curb any liability tossed their way if students die from drinking 15 4 Lokos during the 1st week.

    Its just the age old administrative technique of trying to cover their asses with their wallets – paying for a program that’s not going to actually do what it sets out to accomplish, but covers them from lawsuits.

    My shitfacedness started riots Johnson Hall hasn’t even heard about.

    Gasp! How dare the administration try and interfere with the sacred U of O tradition of getting drunk and rioting. Challenge accepted.
