Fans in luxury boxes and club-level seats will be able to buy alcohol at the University of Colorado's Folsom Field next season.

The rest of the stadium will remain dry, as it has been since 1996.

University officials said alcohol will be available during the 2003 season in the $50,000-a-year luxury suites that will be built atop the east side of the stadium.

Fans paying $2,250 a season to sit in club seats will be able to drink inside the adjoining clubhouse, but not in the stands.

"This sends the wrong message to students and, more importantly, to the community at large that we've got the haves and the have-nots at Folsom Field," said Maureen Ediger, chairwoman of the CU Board of Regents.

Some students said the ban isn't a big deal.

"If people are interested in drinking beer in the stadium, and they are willing to pay more, then why not?" asked junior Bjorn Einloft.
