In the US, you wouldn't be able to legally offer that free beer till their 3rd or 4th year, in most cases. (legal drinking age is 21)
May soon be moot.
In an effort to combat the widespread problem of underage
drinking on American campuses, several university Deans have now asked our Legislators to lower the drinking age to 18. Several congressmen have expressed an interest discussing the idea. Apparently, the new strategy is to redefine
the problem in such a manner as to make it simply disappear.
I seem to recall Mr. Orwell had a bit to say about that sort of thing.
P.S. I wish I could pretend to be surprised about Buffy and tea reading courses in American universities. But I live in the States, so I'm not. Disgusted maybe. But not at all surprised. What does surprise me is that the rot now seems to be spreading 'across the pond.'
IMHO That is truly alarming news!
