Fraternity Organization at Michigan State University Bans Drinks Over 15% Alcohol by Volume

An organization representing more than two dozen fraternities at Michigan State university is banning hard liquor.

The Interfraternity Council is banning all drinks that are more than 15 percent alcohol by volume from its chapters and events.

Hard liquor will only be allowed if it’s served by licensed, third-party vendors.

Council members say they made the decision to lower high-risk behavior from students.

It comes after Central Michigan University removed the Phi Sigma Phi fraternity from campus earlier this week.

They cited alcohol, hazing and sexual misconduct as reasons.
