Rider University Bans Alcohol at Frat Parties

Freshman Died After Binge Drinking

The administration of Rider University plans to curb student binge drinking on campus this coming school year by banning alcohol at all frat parties.

Many believe that the new approach to controlling alcohol at the university came as a result of the death of 18-year old student Gary DeVercelly. DeVercelly's blood alcohol content was more than five times the legal limit when he died after a night of drinking at the university's Phi Kappa Tau house.

Rider University also plans to have a full-time staff member live inside each Greek house and said they will also notify the parents of any student found to be in violation of the campus alcohol policy.
