CU Drinking Program Struggling

By  | 

CU officials say 13 percent of freshman failed the mandatory
course, which was required for them this fall as part of a campaign
to cut down on binge drinking.

The three hour course covers binge drinking, violence, sexual
assault, hazing and what to do if a friend is dangerously drunk. It
ends with a 40-question exam.

Students must get at least 80 percent right to register for
spring classes.

But more than 400 haven't started it and others haven't
finished. And 560 students failed it at least once.

CU is dealing with the death of freshman Lynn Gordon Bailey
Junior. The 18-year-old from Dallas was found dead in a Boulder
fraternity house after a night of heavy drinking.

The cause of death hasn't been released.
