In contrast to the many anti-drinking programs at many US colleges and Universities, Colby College in Maine is taking a different tack. On Fridays, they offer beer and wine in the cafeteria for students of legal drinking age, with a two drink limit. The intention is to promote responsible drinking and have upperclassmen serve as role models for younger students.

U-M President Mary Sue Coleman is a recognized leader in anti-drinking campaigns on US campuses.
