And throw this data point in: this university has apparently been
distributing purity for a very long time.

As usual, this policy is not seriously applied. It's there to cover
the University in the case of a lawsuit, and to allow them to

anybody can be effectively accused of violating the policy; it's
almost impossible to go through the day without doing so).
