    I don't think having late night classes is weird, just that somebody actually thinks it is a solution to binge drinking problems.

    I agree. If the late night courses were being held to make more efficient use of resources, human or physical, I could easily understand but to think that the courses will reduce binge drinking is ludicrous considering tha binge drinkers don't attend all their classes anyway. I can rely on personal experience instead of wistful thinking for that opinion.

    I am sure heavy party goers are going to sign up for a class that late.

    I actually probably would've actually made it to class if it was that late.

    If I was throwing my money down the toilet at EIU I would binge drink too.

    Hah, intramurals to stop drinking? The late night intramural hockey and broomball games were the best reason TO drink!

    Re: I hope this is an April Fool's Joke

    This sounds like a recipe for security issues. I wonder what EIU's insurer thinks about putting students all over campus overnight.

    Re: I hope this is an April Fool's Joke

    Best line of the story...

    Vice Provost Tom Rocklin said the aim is to offer options that cost less than drinking. He said if things work out this semester, university offiiclal would add more in the future.
