As student groups with adequate insurance coverage, Fraternities and Sororities are afforded the privilege of hosting social events. With this privilege comes expectations regarding ensuring the safety and welfare of those in attendance. All members are expected to know and abide by all applicable state and federal laws and University policies and procedures, including but not limited to the Social Events Policy. Students are responsible for their own behavior; however, if alcohol is a part of an event, student organizers and sponsors must undertake efforts to provide a safe environment for the attendees.
All social events need to be registered and hosted in accordance with the Fraternity and Sorority Programs Social Events Policy and the inter/national policies of each fraternity or sorority.
The procedures set forth here constitute minimum requirements that must be met to register social events. The following procedure is a notification process and NOT a means for an organization to receive approval from Fraternity and Sorority Programs to host the event.
All social events with alcohol must be registered by 12:00 p.m. (noon) at minimum 10 business days in advance of your event. The registration form is due to the Event with Alcohol mailbox in the Fraternity Sorority Programs office, Room 404 of the Student Union. Registrations submitted with out the proper attachments and signatures will not be considered.
The best practices set forth here will benefit an organization who is conducting a social event. Nothing precludes chapters from adopting practices that are more stringent than those set forth herein.
