12. So now they'll drink at off-campus parties

Somehow, I don't see college kids switching from Popov to Gallo over a rule change. If parties with hard alcohol are banned from campus, they'll simply move the parties off campus. Which means more public drunkenness, more drunk driving, and more opportunities for drunken undergrads to be assaulted in less protected environments.

Then again, that last one may be the entire point. Colleges are now being held responsible for sexual offenses because those offenses happen on campus. If one student assaults another in an off-campus location, the college can duck the entire issue and decline to get involved. If a drunk student sexually assaults another drunk student in a dorm room, the school has to address it because it happened on the college campus and makes the learning environment hostile for women. If a drunk student sexually assaults another drunk student in an alley halfway across town, it's not the colleges problem. They're adults and it didn't happen on campus or at a college event. They get to wash their hands of it. Hell, they might not even have to report it in their Clery Act disclosures.
