Any group or sponsoring entity wishing to include alcohol as part of an event must abide by state and local laws relevant to alcohol, to the Alcohol Policy included in the Student Code of Conduct, and to the requirements of the Alcohol and Use of Campus Facilities Policy.
During the academic year, the College’s residence halls are designated as alcohol-free and cannot be reserved for events at which alcohol will be served. Exceptions will be considered during break periods and/or times when students are not in residence. As a general practice, the Hicks Student Center is also an alcohol-free facility during the academic year.
Alcoholic beverages may be served on campus under the following conditions:
- An event is properly registered through the Events Scheduling & Facilities Reservation Office.
- A “Registration and Activities Form for Events Serving Alcohol” [PDF 84KB] must be completed and submitted at least two (2) weeks in advance of the event to, and approved by, the Office of Student Development.
- The distribution of alcoholic beverages must be monitored and event requirements fulfilled in accordance with College policies. Please see Student Development Alcohol Policy and Human Resources Alcohol and Use of Campus Facilities Policy for full details.
