Plan safe transportation (in advance) for those deemed unfit to drive. Tiger Ride provides safe transportation at no cost to the organization (more information available in the ASR office in Coates University Center).
Drinking games are not allowed at events with alcohol. Open parties are prohibited. Open parties are defined as functions with unrestricted access by nonmembers of the organization. Manage guests through invitations (printed or emailed).
Organizations may not purchase alcoholic beverages with organization funds, nor may they organize the collection of funds for the purchase of alcohol. Organizations may not co-sponsor or co-finance an event in which alcohol is purchased by any of the host organizations. Exceptions to this policy include organizational events in the Tigers’ Den and limited quantities of alcohol used for celebratory purposes (including religious holidays and special occasions). Exceptions are granted via the Alcohol-Use Permit process.
No student organization may co-sponsor an event with an alcohol distributor, charitable organization, or tavern where alcohol is given away, sold or otherwise provided to those present. This is different than hosting an event at an establishment that sells alcohol.
No alcohol shall be present at any pledge/associate/new member education program or event. All rush/recruitment activities will be dry (no alcoholic beverages). Annually, each Greek organization may petition for one exception to this rule for an event held at a third party vendor where rushees may be invited.
Third Party Vendor Guidelines The vendor must be properly licensed by the appropriate local and state authorities. This might involve both a liquor license and/or a temporary license to sell on the premises where the function is held (if applicable).
The vendor must assume all responsibilities that any other purveyor of alcoholic beverages would assume in the normal course of business, including but not limited to: checking for proper identification upon entry, not serving to minors, not serving to individuals who appear to be intoxicated, maintaining absolute control of all alcoholic containers present, and collecting all remaining alcohol at the end of the function.
