    At Tuesday’s symposium, national experts are expected to discuss how college officials can encourage students to challenge the college drinking culture and advocate for change, as well as practical ways to effectively control alcohol use on campus.

    The symposium will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Norwich University.
