The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Rutgers Newark are cracking down on illegal alcohol consumption, and they want Montclair State students to know it.
The two universities, in conjunction with the City of Newark, took out a full-page advertisement in last week’s edition of The Montclarion, announcing that they will be reinforcing alcohol safety laws.
The move was targeted at Montclair State students who head over to the fraternities at NJIT, particularly on Thursday nights, to party.
The NJIT Police Department was unavailable for comment, but Montclair State University Police spokesperson Captain Kieran Barrett added some insight to the recent ad: “Each campus addresses their own issues as they see meets their campus needs.”
Barrett continued, “At Montclair State we have always, and will continue to educate students about their rights and responsibilities under the law and address any inappropriate behaviors accordingly.”
Both NJIT and Rutgers- Newark have a high volume of students come to their campuses and all schools look to spread awareness on the use, sale and distribution of alcohol. Both schools have documents and links on their websites explicitly stating the consequences of violating the alcohol laws on campus, as well as general awareness of alcohol consumption.
