Earlier this week, it was reported that the university had established a new set of regulations for on-campus tailgating, effective immediately (though DPS plans to ease in the regulations throughout the semester).
Although many of the rules simply restated existing policies, the most attention-grabbing of the provisions were restrictions on loud music and and the already much-disdained ban on drinking games, such as beer pong.
The reasoning for this ban stems from an effort to keep the tailgating experience a family friendly environment.
Drinking games were targeted as they encourage the mass consumption of alcohol in a short amount of time, leading to quicker intoxication and a higher probability of injury or disorderly conduct.
Those found in violation of the rules could be cited and referred to Student Judicial Affairs, with non-student visitors potentially asked to leave campus property.
Many have questioned the regulations; all things considered, we want to know:
Do you think that the current state of tailgating on campus is a problem?
