April 21, 2019 12:02 PM

TROY-- RPI students are weighing in after college officials amended the alcohol and drug policies. 

In late March, the college updated these policies announcing it was prohibiting alcohol at institute owned, controlled, or affiliated residential facilities where undergraduate students live, including sororities and fraternities with housing.

"I think the intent is ok, but I think the problem might shove stuff underground more, and whether or not it pans that way, we're just going to have to see" said junior Nathan Karwic. 

RPI must approve student organization parties-- where alcohol is served. The booze must be served by approved 3rd party vendors. The events must take place away from chapter houses and residential facilities at RPI or a location approved by the third party vendor. 

And it's mandatory expulsion for a first offense for trafficking any illegal drugs. The school also has zero tolerance for illegal and misusing prescription drugs.
