If the person killed in this case were 21, the blame would lie with the university. It is completely LEGAL to be drunk when you're 21, as long as you're not driving. It was ILLEGAL for that vault to be unlocked.

Actually, there's a gray area there. Public intoxication is illegal also. Essentially, anything that causes a major nuisance or can be harmful to the drunk or those around him falls under public intoxication. Especially when we factor in witness accounts of him, he certainly seems to fall into that category.

Wasn't this by Owen Hall? When did Owen become male-only?
Owen isn't an all male hall. It's half male, half female. The door Steffey was trying to get in was in the middle of the two wings, neither the guys or girls side. And as for why he was trying to sneak in...he left his jacket in there before he went to the party and he was trying to get in to get it back.

Pulled a Costanza? An excuse to see her again?
