Why tolerate this behavior?
I'm a recent graduate of <A large American college>. And I think anyone who gets stinking drunk should be kicked out, no ifs, ands, buts, or second chances.
College students used to be seen as hard-working, determined individuals. And 90% of them, in my experience, are. But the 10% who throw loud parties, form drunk mobs in the street (and bus, and subway), and commit acts of drunken vandalism ruin it for the rest of us. As a junior I had difficulty renting an apartment off campus because they were worried I would throw destructive parties and stuff- just because I was a student. When drunk kids die by falling out windows or trespass and get hit by trains it ruins the public perception of my college- and thus potentially lessens the value of my diploma when I am looking for employment.
If I came to work drunk or hung-over (or stoned or high) it would probably be the end of my job. Make it the same way for college classes. Whatever happened to that "preparation for the real world" thing?
