The Associated Students of Madison’s Legislative Affairs Committee circulated a survey to gain insight into students’ opinions on city nightlife last Friday October 26. On Monday, October 29, Legislative Affairs Vice Chair Rachel Lepak released the results. The survey is part of a campaign to work with the ALRC, a city alcohol licensing policy Committee, in improving entertainment options that are available to students between 18 and 21 years of age.

Just under 2500 students have answered the survey so far, and 91% agreed that entertainment is targeted to those who are ages 21 and over. One-third of those that responded said they have used a fake ID to see 21+ entertainment, purchase alcohol, or both. Also, most students polled agreed that transportation would be an issue, and are looking for on-campus city entertainment.

Legislative Affairs Chair Dan Statter said: “ We’re very pleased with the amount of people that have responded to the survey. From these numbers, we can definitely get a great sample group that we can base our discussions off of. We want to work with the city to create more entertainment options for those under 21”.

The 18+ entertainment survey will be closed on Thursday, November 1. The discussion on 18+ entertainment will be continued in the Legislative Affairs Committee meeting next Monday, November 5 at 7:00PM, with Mark Woulf, the city’s Alcohol Policy Coordinator.
