many US colleges don't allow alcohol on campus at events at which  
undergraduates are present.
some US colleges sponsor on-campus pubs for students of legal age, to  
keep them from going off campus toward accidents.
So a single generalization doesn't work here.
Heck, there are still some "dry" campuses in the US, faculty AND  

I'm not sure how many undergraduate students attended SLCC.. such  
that this might not be an issue at a convention.
Further, one could "ticket" the events with booze in such a way as to  
exclude underage students from those events.

I suspect this issue would not present much of a problem at most/many  
US college convention oriented sites.
