VT revamps alcohol violation policy

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

BLACKSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Virginia Tech is now notifying parents when students under 21 are disciplined for alcohol and drug-related violations.

The university adopted the policy last month in response to parent requests.

Under the previous policy, parents were notified of violations only after a second offense.

Virginia Tech already has a "three strikes" policy in effect for alcohol violations.
