Alcohol Guidelines/ Expectations

RSO's who have national affiliations are encouraged to follow the risk management policy set forth by their national organization.

At any event where alcohol is served, it is recommended that a system be implemented to ensure that alcoholic beverages are not accessible or served to persons under the legal drinking age or to persons who appear to be intoxicated, regardless of age (i.e., security, "checking in" of alcohol, designated servers, no "open" parties).

It is recommended that club or organizational funds not be used to purchase alcoholic beverages.

Each club or organization is encouraged to adhere to the alcohol marketing guidelines and risk management practices listed elsewhere in these expectations.

It is recommended that beverages whose alcoholic content is difficult to determine (e.g., "teas", punches) not be served.

It is recommended that individuals and groups in the campus community not promote the irresponsible use of alcohol. 

Portraying drinking as a solution to personal or academic problems should be discouraged.RSO's are advised to make sure risk management guidelines have been agreed upon in advance when co-sponsoring activities involving alcohol with other groups.
