ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Fraternities at the University of Michigan are putting a cork in liquor at many parties.
Beer still could be available at large parties involving fraternities and their guests, but the university's Interfraternity Council has voted to ban liquor. The Ann Arbor News (http://bit.ly/1bSZQ70) reports that 27 of 30 fraternity presidents voted for the change this week.
The newspaper says the policy wouldn't apply to parties during football games or parties involving just a few fraternities and sororities.
Tommy Wydra, president of the Interfraternity Council, says the policy will "keep everyone safe" and the parties will be "easier to run." He says U-M officials say a ban on hard liquor would prevent many problems.
