Stanford University takes aim at alcohol-fueled parties
STANFORD, Calif. (KTVU) - Stanford University is putting new rules in place designed to crack down on alcohol fueled parties.
The new strict alcohol policy comes just two months after the Brock Turner case.
Prosecutors say the former Stanford swimmer had been drinking heavily at a campus fraternity party before he sexually assaulted an unconscious woman.
Under the new rules hard liquor is banned at all undergraduate campus parties. Beer and wine are still OK.
In addition, undergraduates are no longer allowed to have any bottle of alcohol larger than 750 milliliters.
Those who break the rules could be removed from university housing.
This will also apply to seven fraternities and three sororities on campus.
Some victim's advocates have criticized the new rules, saying putting the focus on alcohol use doesn’t address the issue of sexual assaults on campus.
University officials hope this will help change the campus culture around alcohol.
