Wet tailgating indicates change

September 19, 2014

During my three years at Truman State, I’ve always heard rumors about wet tailgating, but I never thought I would actually see it happen. But this time the rumors are true. Truman now allows wet tailgating. The decision is a surprising departure from the institution’s historically conservative alcohol policies on our campus.

The decision likely will increase interest in Truman athletics. However, it might lead to questioning the dry campus rules throughout coming years as Truman experiments with wet tailgating.

The question of whether there should be wet tailgating is one student government has brought up numerous times throughout the past. This time, student government is allowing wet tailgating. Of course, this doesn’t mean anyone can freely drink alcohol around Stokes Stadium right before a game.
