Underage Drinking May Force ‘Baruch Bash’ Into A 21+ Only Affair

BARUCH COLLEGE–This year, the Undergraduate Student Goverment is considering making “Baruch Bash,” an annual end-of-year party that is usually open to all students, only open to students aged 21 and up. This is because in previous years, underage students have shown up to the Bash drunk and in certain situations had to be taken out in ambulances.

During the Oct. 16 senate meeting, Executive Vice President Emma Jorgensen, who is in charge of planning this year’s Bash, explained that the event was originally for graduating seniors aged 21 and over but USG opened it up to all students a couple of years ago to be more welcoming.
