As a WSU Alum, I can’t help but enjoy this bit of news. Washington State University, the once championed party school, has been working to stray away from its party image for the past few years. What would be the best way to do this? Allow liquor sales on campus. That seems a bit contradictory, but I like it. WSU is going to allow liquor sales prior to football games, at golf events and at the Student Union Building. The union building is at the heart of the WSU campus and If I could have stopped by the bar in between classes I would have spent much more time around campus.
I’m sure this gimmick will bring more students to campus, but they are still not going to be attending classes. There is nothing like knocking back a few Busch Lights (the Pullman staple) between classes to educationally motivate the student body.
