I don’t think I’m the only person who read your June 22 article on nightlife near LSU (“Social Studies,” FUN section) and wondered why The Advocate is promoting alcohol consumption among young people.
Do we need to be reminded that Tigerland abounds in bars, all within easy walking distance of the campus? How convenient! The frequent mentions of the late-night “drunk bus” and of students skittering from bar to bar along darkened streets only serve to reinforce the popular image of LSU as a party school where drinking and socializing are synonymous.
This story was worthy of the LSU student paper, but certainly not of The Advocate.
