U Regents Consider Whether to Sell Alcohol on Campus
The Minnesota Daily reported that the University Regents were considering selling alcohol at several on-campus locations, including Mariucci Arena , Williams Arena, University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, and the new football stadium.
‚ÄúNothing [alcoholic] would ever be available to the general population in our buildings,‚Ä? Craig Flor, the the assistant program director for Intercollegiate Athletics told the Daily.
The La Crosse Tribune reported that alcohol would only be available to those in expensive club seats or private boxes. University spokesman Dan Wolter told the Tribune that one reason for the limited sales is that many underage students attend university sporting events.
The Daily reported that beer and wine are often given away in the private boxes and rooms, and allowing for it to be sold would help the University recoup some of its losses from those who take advantage of the open bar.
