Use of Alcohol on Campus


The use or possession of alcoholic beverages on the campus and institutionally sponsored off-campus events shall comply at all times with Federal, State and local Laws governing use, manufacture, distribution, possession, sale and transportation of alcoholic beverages.

The President or his/her designee may authorize alcoholic beverages to be distributed and consumed at approved events, with the understanding that both the organizers and the participants of the event are subject to all federal and state laws pertaining to alcohol distribution and consumption. Additionally, a Public Safety officer must be present at all events involving alcoholic beverages. This expense for the officer will be incurred by the group.
