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. In particular, they are seeing an increase in the number of average and below average students who are applying, students whose records and attitudes indicate that they are less concerned with education and more concerned with having a good time. Other schools with prior reputations as party schools have started to turn that reputation around through the targeted use of anti-drinking campaigns. It is to this end that the college board of directors has requested that individuals associated with the Alexus University campus work to come up with different campaigns that may be utilized in order to work to negate and decrease the current behaviors of students on campus, ensuring that the campus’s reputation may once again be restored to its previous splendor.
Is Campus Carry in Texas the best solution? With mass shootings on campus being more known, Texas concluded that the best solution is to allow anyone on campus to conceal carry. Texas needs to think about the increase risk by having more guns on campus and other possibilities. Concealed carry on campus in Texas should be banned because of college student’s mentality, student’s increase in alcohol and drug rates, and student’s viewpoints. College can have a major effect on students, especially for their mental health.
Although concealed carry is very advantageous in the scene of dangerous situations, college campuses are secured with police and medical personnel who are far more experienced with dangerous situations. There is a time and place for everything; hallways and classrooms are not the place for guns (Alford). Adding firearms to the everyday life of a college student would worsen safety issues on campus instead of fixing them. The first reason to not allow guns on campus most importantly is it places lives in jeopardy and makes campus a dangerous place. Students from all over the world attend a certain college to learn and begin the next step of their lives.
One reason why teens drink and drive is because of peer pressure. Teens often get sucked in to drinking. They feel that it is “cool” to drink and drive. The one thing that teens don’t realize is how much one drink can do. One drink can change a life or often many lives in a
Teens have a difficult enough time making decisions and organizing their lives, but adding alcohol to the mix will only make matters worse; their bodies are still developing, and they are still learning to be adults. Teens already struggle deciding what clubs to join, what colleges to apply for, what college to attend, what to major in, and much more. Teens should not be allowed to legally drink because alcohol consumption can affect their health and
He argues that “campus would be brighter” with a bar, he also asserts that the cause of binge drinking among students is the administration’s obsession with alcohol abuse. On the other hand,he insists a campus bar would promote peace and tranquility, relieve stress, and bring in revenue: “if the Student Union were to sell beer, it would also be selling responsible drinking in a saner, more soothing environment, which would make the city, the campus, and everyone else concerned a great deal happier. Of course, the campus would also be a great deal happier with the additional income generated by alcohol sales. The amount taken in would be staggering. And who knows, it would possibly augment parking revenues as well.” He also believes a campus bar would improve professor-student relationships in that it would “break down the walls” between them.
If a minor is drinking at a private premises they must be supervised. It is up to the police to determine if a parent, guardian or supervising adult should be taken to court for not supervising properly.

For starters, studies show an increase of dangerous drinking habits among young adults (Hall 2). In addition, the enforcement of the drinking laws and education on alcohol is insubstantial (Moyse, Fonder 3). Society places laws to protect individuals. The rise of alcohol abuse raises the question if the minimum legal drinking age of 21 secures protection of the people. With proper enforcement of drinking laws in addition to education about alcohol, the minimum legal drinking age of 18 provides a safer drinking culture.

Opponents of these views present several arguments. Some students on college campuses believe that they should be able to drink at the age of eighteen. There has been much debate about whether the legal drinking age had better be lowered in America. At the age of eighteen teens are legal under the law to marry, join the military, vote, and more. These students see that teens can do all this under the law so they also want to drink at this same age since they are legal to do many other things.

According to Main in ¨Underage Drinking and the Drinking Age” from the Policy Review, lowering the drinking age to eighteen from twenty-one would increase the harsh effects that are currently impacting our society and our military. Main insists that the United States should not get rid of the laws that set 21 as the mandatory minimum age for drinking, known as the ¨21 laws.¨ Although there are laws and severe consequences for those who drink under the age of 21, underage drinking is a huge concern, especially at college. When the undergraduates binge drink, drinking five or more alcoholic drinks on one occasion, they not only have the potential to hurt themselves, but also their peers. For example, over 474,000 students have unprotected sex,
I hope that during my undergraduate years at George Mason University I will be able to investigate the problem affecting many colleges that is date rape drugs. Rape on college campuses is a horrifying epidemic that our country is facing. According to healthresearchfunding.org “Up to 90% of college campus rapes occur through date rape incidents.” Almost every day on the news there is a new story about a woman who was a victim of rape or sexual assault, and most of the time the perpetrator gets away hands free. A major reason why date rape drugs are commonly used is because they are easily slipped in to drinks at college parties and are undetectable by the victim. It is undeniable that most college parties contain alcoholic drinks that may increase the chances of being a victim of rape.
President Obama and leaders of universities came together to create the “It On Us” campaign against sexual assault on college campuses. The campaign wants everyone to assume responsibility and realize that we can all do something to stop sexual assault. There is a culture of silence at college campuses when it comes to sexual assault, and that is a major issue because it leads to victims blaming themselves and not reporting the incident. “It On Us” wants all universities to step forward and take action towards fighting sexual assault. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, reported that prevention efforts should decrease sexual assault, and that they have identified two programs that have shown to prevent sexual violence perpetration, students need to be educated on how to be a positive bystander rather than a negative one.
