Should we lower the drinking age?

On Tuesday, Thomas Pellegrino, associate vice president and dean of students at Fairfield University, said Von Arx signed the petition because he believes it is time for open debate, not because he necessarily recommends lowering the drinking age. “Issues about the drinking age, both pros and cons, really need to be vetted out, because they have not in the past,” Pellegrino said. “One of the criticisms you’ll hear about the signers is that the colleges are just trying to foist the problem back on somebody else and not deal with it. Nothing can be further from the truth.”
