NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Some University of Oklahoma students aren't sure a ban on alcohol at fraternities and sororities will have much effect on student drinking.

The policy -- which went into effect Tuesday -- was ordered in the wake of the September alcohol poisoning death of Sigma Chi fraternity pledge Blake Hammontree.

23-year-old Brian Schultz says the rules aren't going to deter people from drinking. Schultz -- a broadcast meteorology major and member of Delta Upsilon fraternity -- says it's up to each student to be responsible with drinking.

20-year-old journalism-advertising major Eric Rosling says he doesn't mind the new policy and prefers going to a bar or someone's home for a party. Rosling isn't a fraternity member.

OU vice president for student affairs Clarke Stroud says the new policy will make a difference. Stroud says the feedback officials have received from students while working on the new policy has been positive.
