Penn State Bribing Bars Not To Serve Booze On State Patty’s Day

Goodness me! What is the world coming to when universities are not trusting their students to be responsible? Granted, students probably are going to celebrate the day by enjoying an adult beverage or two, but the meat of it is that they are just that – adults. Why is it up to the Universities to butt in?

    Sometimes I think that University is becoming less and less about learning to be an adult and more and more about remaining a child.

    Some kids won’t do anything on their own and, worse still, some adults don’t want them to.

      For kids that are going straight from high school to college, more often than not, they are still mentally kids, and what’s more – they’re kids being let off their leashes away from their parents for the first time. But even so, it’s not up to the Universities to make sure those kids grow up. If they want to punish them for coming to class still drunk and unable to function, that’s fine, it’s on school property.
      hm, this reply is turning into more of a rant. ha ha!

        Fair enough. You’re right. A university shouldn’t have anything to do with that.

        I used to work in the academic advising center when I was in college. There was just nothing more appalling than when a parent would call or come in on behalf of their child. They, for some reason, expected the college To take on the role of parent while their child was away from their care. It was a rather horrifying situation that typically led to the statement “I’m sorry sir/ma’am but your son is a legal adult now. We cannot help you.”

        Some parents need that answer, that little bit of a wake-up call

    Oh you are kidding me – that would be like asking the stores not to sell toys at Christmas and just out of interest why is the university sticking its nose into the long held tradition of excess alcohol and partying for its students. Something is wrong with this picture – maybe I need a drink and then it will make sense.

      I think its’ a sign that Penn State has too much money that it doesn’t know what to do with it. How much does it cost to bribe barS – with an S at the end of it, meaning more than one – to not serve alcohol to students, which must bring in an ENORMOUS profit for the barS (again, with the S involved). I think the bars would be stupid to take it. People will drink, and if they can’t go to all the bars the took the bribes, the ones that didn’t will be able to retire the next day
