American drinking age? university?!

Question: American drinking age!? university!?
just wondering how can all undergraduate universities in america been know for wild parties when the drinking age is 21!. Does that mean its just undercover and no one can go to a bar!. assuming u start university at 19 u wont be able to drink till the start of your third year!?!?

Just wondering as i may have the chance to study in usa for a semester (uni exchange), but it will be in my second year and will be 20!. Does this mean 4 months of no booze, or if it is its all undercover-no bars, clubs!?!?

thanks in advance

Yes there is A LOT of underage drinking at college!. It's not out in the public, it's usually at private parties!. also, even if you get caught, especially since you only have 4 months, you'll probably just go with a warning, nothing major!. People tend to look the other way!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

The legal drinking age in the U!.S!.A!. is 21!. The "illegal" drinking age is whenever you can get away with it!. Not that I encourage this, but there is plenty of alcohol available on most college campuses!. Older students will buy for younger students, plus there are fraternity parties, etc!.

Bars are not the best place!. A few may serve younger patrons who appear to be 21, but that's pretty dangerous for them, because if they're caught, their license can be suspended!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You can't drink booze, there is a lot of underage drinking though at frat parties and stuff if you get caught, unless the cop is pissed, you'll generally just get a warning!.
21 is the drinking age!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You can go to house parties and drink but to get into clubs and bars, you must be 21 years of age!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
