There's no question, college kids like to have a good time. If you have a nightlife venue, or are holding an event in close proximity to a bustling campus, you can be sure hordes of party-ready students will be pouring through your doors. And that's great! More business is never a bad thing. However you can almost be positive there will be underage students attempting to gain entry, and that puts your business at risk.
With the start of the new fall semester, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced a recent, multi-agency effort to stop underage drinking.
With the likes of the State Police, state liquor regulators and the DMV banding together, efforts will include more in-depth training of bar workers, out reach and prevention methods and raids on campus drinking locations.
