University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternities to ban hard alcohol starting in August

Starting next school year, fraternities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will no longer be able to have hard alcohol at their events.

IFC President Justin Henry said the decision was set in motion after the North American Interfraternity Council, which governs many of the UNL frat houses, decided on the same ban last summer.

"However, we have five (out of 23) fraternities that aren't under the NIC," he said. "So what we did made it so all the fraternities are on the same playing field, under the same rules."
