Alexus University, like a good portion of universities and institutes of higher learning in the United States, has become known as a party school. The issue of underage drinking has become a matter of great concern for the university, as they believe that this is working to damage their reputation as a serious institute of learning; instead of students applying to the school because they want to learn, officials are noticing an ever increasing trend in the types of applicants who are looking to attend the school.
