Penn State's Failure to Change Alcohol Policies Post-Piazza

Everyone knows that underage and binge drinking is not a Penn State problem but is instead a problem at college campuses across the United States.  However, following the death of Timothy Piazza, whom the Centre County District Attorney has claimed may have had a blood alcohol level as high as .36%, Penn State and excessive consumption of alcohol have been in the news. In response to the tragedy, the Piazza family called on Penn State to make many changes, one of which was a call to change to the Good Samaritan policies for underage drinking and alcohol overdoses.  Sadly, Penn State has not followed through on its on promises and no changes have been made.
