UK to review campus alcohol policy

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The University of Kentucky will review its campus alcohol policy.  A task force made up of 15 university officials and community members will study the longtime alcohol policy at UK, which strictly bans alcohol on campus.

The panel will also examine factors leading to alcohol abuse and ways to prevent it.  School officials say part of the reason for the review came from alcohol-related problems at tailgating and rowdy celebrations after the national basketball championship win in 2012.

Community groups have also complained that the ban causes more students to drink in nearby neighborhoods.
