University Considers Ban

April 19, 1988

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) _ The University of Oregon is considering banning beer parties at fraternities and sororities.

The so-called ″keggers″ also would be banned from university-affiliated housing.

″What we’re saying is, ‘No kegs,’ whether they’re legally able to drink or not,″ Gerard Moseley, vice president for student affairs at the 17,500- student school, said Monday.

Each housing group also would be required to sponsor alcohol and drug education programs at least twice each academic year.

While the housing groups include some students older than age 21, the majority of their residents have not reached legal drinking age, Moseley said.

Fraternity and sorority members at least 21 would be allowed to ″possess and use alcoholic beverages in personal use amounts,″ the proposal said.

Complaints of underage people drinking prompted the proposal, Moseley said.

Students will be asked for comments about the proposal during the next few weeks.
