You'd think university officials would ease up on the booze thing given the growing disparity between cost of education and value of most undergrad degrees.

I dunno. I went to a small college full of nerds, and while our parties were certainly not CU-level-sofa-burning-riot-level, booze on campus was AOK from freshman year onwards, and there was certainly zero active regulation of alcohol by cops or college security. We weren't quiet. I guess it just depends on where you end up. I had a ridiculous "bar" (which, for a freshman, is as many plastic handles of mccormicks vodka as you can afford - tastes like sharpies and despair) in my freshman dorm.
