Lieutenant General Robert Caslen, former president of West Point, is under consideration to become the next president of the University of South Carolina. But, his comments at a recent forum could derail that because some students did not agree with them. Caslen, when addressing the issue of sexual assaults at West Point, said, “We went after this … not only sexual assaults, but we want to take up the contributing measures toward sexual assault, particularly alcohol. We had to spend a lot of time, a lot of energy, toward educating students about the consequences of alcohol, binge drinking, things like that.”
Apparently, educating cadets about binge drinking and how it could contribute to sexual assaults is an untenable position for some South Carolina college students.
