    Welcome to Point/Counterpoint, our new feature in which two writers sound off opposite positions on issues that matter to the NU masses. This week’s topic will probably never stop getting talked about on college campuses: Should the drinking age be lowered? Click on the quotes below for the two sides of the argument, then leave your own opinion in a comment.

    “By removing the stigma of underage drinking, drinking may become less of a sport and, consequently, much less dangerous.”
    Aubrey Blanche
    “If keeping the legal drinking age at 21 has a chance of saving a single life, then at 21 it should stay.”
    Hallie Busta
