Ibby’s currently serves beer and wine to students who are over 21 years old who really enjoy the opportunity and behave responsibly. WashU has given us the autonomy to self-regulate with RedFlag and trusting the students and letting them be responsible with their alcohol consumption on campus has become a well-established program. 7
