  •  I dunno (4+ / 0-)

    I spent a year abroad in college in England, where drinking was legal for all ages of college students, and there was much, much more drinking there than there was at my college back in the U.S., which was a big state school so not BYU or anything.

    For example the students on my hall in the UK (who were all the equivalent of freshmen, so 18) decided to spend the last week of the first quarter drunk. The entire week, 24/7. That is just an example but there are plenty more like it. We had at least one ER visit for alcohol poisoning, a broken large plate glass window because someone drunk punched it (requiring an ER trip and stitches), students walking from room to room on the outside of the building (3rd floor), and a lot more incidents like that.
