Over the years, UD has become more involved in its students' recreational activities. They have been awarded numerous grants for the prevention of underage drinking, and they seem to be a bit obsessed at times. If you are smart and careful, you should get along just fine, but alcohol does tend to dull your inhibitions, leading to displays of drunkenness. This can possibly result in a strike and alcohol responsibility classes, or even arrest and expulsion.
There have been complaints that UD Police are so worried about catching underage drinkers that they aren't actually protecting students. UD's main goal with all of these policies is to show students that this school is no longer a party school and they won't tolerate anything that will tarnish their new, serious image. Breaking the rules can have serious consequences, but most people find that if you are responsible and use a little bit of common sense, you can have fun and avoid getting in trouble.
