The University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, following the death of a student that drowned last year in a river after a night of heavy drinking, is considering banning all alcohol consumption in dorms- even if the students are 21-years of age.

Incoming freshman are currently required to take part in an online alcohol-education course. If a student is later caught committing a drinking offense, they will be required to take a class that focuses on educating them on the harmful impact of alcohol on the body and mind.

Alternatives to the ban include barring all alcohol from residence halls, levying fines, hosting additional alcohol-education classes, or launching a marketing campaign that will underline the disadvantages of drinking alcohol.
