"Apparently Vassar is one of the only schools that still 'allows' students to have kegs," the rep exclusively tells Mads. "There's some concern that having ResLife approve students to serve alcohol from a common container opens the school up to a lot of liability."
In fact, the proposal will also include the ban of punch bowls and other communal drinks.
Dean Roellke, who has been vocal this year against the current level of alcohol use on campus, is chair of the committee.
Update: We just spoke to Dean Roellke who clarified that 22 people will be voting on the proposal, ten faculty members/administration, twelve students. 60% need to vote yes in order for it to pass. Roellke says this recommendation came from the drug and alcohol education sub-committee of CCL and has been a long standing recommendation. "As in all cases of college regulations, we proceed through shared governance and student input is highly important in this process," he says.
