  • If a person has become intoxicated, steps should be taken to try and help the individual sober up prior to leaving the party.

  • The responsible student monitoring the event must make certain that any person that has become intoxicated will not be allowed to drive. Cab fare should be provided, if necessary, or an escort should be provided to ensure that the person gets home safely.

  • The Administrative Director of Student Affairs is notified in writing about the event at least one week in advance with the clear statement that alcoholic beverages are planned as part of the food and beverage service serving as the application for a permit.
