Summary:Banning alcohol on college campuses to curb binge drinking-periodic episodes of excessive alcohol consumption-has sparked violence and debate around the country. This ABC News program visits trouble spots such as Michigan State University as anchor Forrest Sawyer talks with the President of the University of Iowa about community coalitions, alcohol education programs, alternative activities, and other initiatives as substitutes for bans. In addition, a senior at the University of Maryland and a junior at the University of California, Berkeley, present their own ideas about student rights and how best to deal with on-campus alcohol abuse and the associated issues of crime and unsafe sex.
