SDSU hopes to have beer, wine sales for new stadium opening

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- South Dakota State University plans to have beer and wine sales at special events on campus under a new law that went into effect earlier this month.

SIOUX FALLS (AP) - South Dakota State University plans to have beer and wine sales at special events on campus under a new law that went into effect earlier this month.

SDSU President Barry Dunn said Friday that the school hopes to have strictly controlled sales for the September opening of the new Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium.

The move comes after lawmakers this year relaxed a prohibition against alcohol sales on public university campuses. The Board of Regents recently approved rules governing the sales.

The policy specifies that beer and wine access must be controlled and restricts the beverage sales to premium seating at student athletic events, among other regulations.

Boosters say the narrow changes will help with fundraising and make school facilities more attractive venues for conferences or other events.
