IU fraternity parties face limits on hard alcohol

Updated:
BLOOMINGTON -

An Indiana University fraternity group says a new policy limiting how much hard alcohol is allowed at fraternity-sponsored parties was well received during its first test earlier this month.

The IU Interfraternity Council says it implemented the hard alcohol limitations in hopes of creating a safer, more responsible drinking atmosphere on the Bloomington campus.

The new limits got their first test during IU's homecoming weekend during the first weekend in November.

Interfraternity Council vice president of communications Jordan Shwide says that while the new policy was well received, its success is difficult to measure.

The Council's vice president of risk management, Ben Weisel, tells The Herald-Times the group is receiving positive feedback from fraternity chapters.
