Hard Liquor Banned at University of Kansas Fraternities

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Fraternity houses at the University of Kansas will ban hard liquor on their properties beginning this fall.  The ban by the school's Interfraternity Council bans the presence or consumption of hard alcohol by fraternity or guests on fraternity property. It does not include beer or wine.  The IFC said the ban includes an amnesty clause that encourages chapters to help anyone who needs medical assistance.  IFC president Chris Pyle said the council has been discussing ways to change the drinking culture within the fraternity community and to create healthier and safer environments.  The Lawrence Journal-World reports that a few of the university's 23 fraternity chapters already are dry, while others have specific rules about when alcohol can be consumed.
