By Amy Barber
Daily Arts Writer
Ask any college student to name
some of the activities in which they like
to partake for fun around campus, and
it's a pretty good bet that drinking will
appear on the list.
And there's nothing wrong with that
... as long as the drinking is done by
responsible adults at least 21 years of
But a large percentage of the drinking
on the University campus (as well as on
other college campuses) is done by
underclassmen who are not old enough
to legally drink ... many of whom live in
residence halls where alcohol is not per-
Despite clear rules against consump-
tion of alcohol in the residence halls,
drinking there is a favorite pastime of
"By the end of last year there was
a party in my hall close to every
night," said LSA sophomore Mike
Schmick. "Most nights I didn't even
go out to drink because it was so
much fun to party on my hall with my
Partying in the residence halls
sounds like a good idea, but what about
the risk of getting caught?
"I never worried about getting
caught," said Schmick. "As long as you
don't act like a drunk idiot you won't
get in trouble."
He's right, apparently. According to
Don Appiarius, one of the University's
four directors of resident education, the
University isn't out to severely punish
anyone for drinking in the residence
"Our philosophy is that everyone
under 21 needs to know what responsi-
ble drinking is," said Appiarius. "We try
not to be ostriches and put our heads in
the sand and think that all of a sudden
when you turn the magical number of
21 you'll start drinking and know how
to do so responsibly.
"We want to teach students how to
drink in a responsible, healthy man-
ner rather than punish them," he said.
And you have to break the rules
rather severely to be strongly pun-
ished. Punishment for most first-time
offenders is just the confiscation of
"Because of state law we have to
take some approach, so we do
remove all the alcohol from the
room," said Appiarius.
Fair enough. But if students are found
drinking in the residence halls more than
once, they could be in more serious trou-
"Subsequent violations are treated
much more seriously," said Appiarius.
"The situation will also be handled dif-
ferently if you're having a block party
on your floor than if you're just sipping
Student experiences support
Appiarius's explanations of University
"I got caught drinking in the dorms
twice my freshman year," said an LSA
junior who wished to remain anony-
mous. "The first time nothing hap-
pened and they were cool because there
were only a few of us sitting around
"But the second time we were being
loud and obnoxious so they weren't so
nice. I had to spend a week working in
the cafeteria as a punishment"
Due to varied demographics in the
residence halls, students are caught
drinking in some residence halls
more than others.
There are higher incidences of stu-
dents found illegally drinking alcohol
in residence halls such as Markley,
where almost everyone is a first-year
"Residence halls such as Baits,
Oxford and certain houses in West
Quad are almost all upperclassmen,"
said Appiarius. "So it is ok for them to
drink responsibly in their halls."
The bottom line is that any residence
hall can be a safe place to drink as long
as you're careful.
Appiarius said approximately 1,000
students are on record for drinking ille-
gally in the residence halls last year, 300
of which were repeat offenses.
If you're still unsure about how to
drink responsibly in the residence halls,
just follow these three simple rules,
compiled from the advice of former
residents, many of whom learned the
1. Be quiet. If you and your friends
are screaming and blasting Puff
Daddy all the way down the hall,
you're inviting an R.A. to pay your
room a visit.
2. Keep your door shut. You don't
want an R.A. to walk by an open door
when you have a room full of liquor.
And if you're blasting Puff Daddy,
the R.A. down the hall is less likely
to hear it if you just close your door.
So this step can also attribute to step
3. Don't have massive amounts of
alcohol or people in your room.
