Most state owned campuses like state universities are dry except for specific areas, typically the football
stadium and/or maybe a recreation area where there is pool tables and bowling.
Many areas in the states don't sell alcohol on Sundays or may not sell it at all. Often sales change from
county to county even.
Much of this goes back to the prohibition and basicly the US moral conservitives have fought tooth and nail all
the way from back then to what they have given up to us to have now. I doubt we will ever be as liberal as
Europe or Canada.
