Ban of caffeinated alcoholic drinks

The University's decision to ban Four Loko and other highly caffeinated alcoholic drinks from campus came at a time when the drinks were being debated across the country. As a result, URI was included in numerous news stories on the topic. Among them were reports in the Wall Street Journal, National Public Radio, New York Daily News, Canada's CBC News, New England Cable News, St. Louis Globe Democrat, Providence Journal, Boston Herald, and many more. Television coverage of the story appeared in media markets as far away as Baltimore and Chicago. Read the URI news release here.
