Montreal/US Differences in Binge Drinking

Drinking outside the box

“If nothing else convinced meof the counterproductive effects of American drinking laws on college life,” he writes in Binge, “my experience at McGill University in Montreal did.”

And McGill’s probably much closer to the US model in drinking than UQÀM and UdeM or even Concordia. At least, that’s the main impression you get from people.

Binge drinking is a huge problem at Indiana University Bloomington and the administration is applying even stricter rules, which is exactly the strategy to make it worse. Isn’t it ironic that Ruth Engs is over there at IUB?
