The University of Idaho is prepared to expel low-performing students and require permits for frat parties as part of an effort to curb underage drinking.

The announcement from the university in Moscow comes on the heels of a similar set of measures proposed just across the border at Washington State University in Pullman.

Washington State University will try some new actions to reduce binge drinking by students, including scheduling more Friday morning classes, and notifying parents if an underage student is caught drinking.

The Pullman-based university announced a series of changes on Monday. The reform process started after a student died of alcohol poisoning in October.

Last October, a freshman at Washington State University passed out after consuming hard liquor and an energy drink. The student later died in the hospital. His blood alcohol level was about five times the legal limit.

That led to some soul-searching on the campus in Pullman, Wash.

It turns out an average of 200 students each year end up in the ER at Pullman Regional Hospital for alcohol poisoning and alcohol-related injuries.

"This class is highly competitive, this class represents the largest population of color than we’ve had in the history of our university, and we’ve been doing that at a time in which we’ve been more fiscally challenged than ever before," said WSU President Elson Floyd.
