Parties can be a fun and bonding college experience. Don't let your memories be tainted with negative consequences or embarrassing stories. Here are some resources for planning a safe and worry-free party.
Planning an event where alcohol will be served takes a great deal of preparation. Please read the following sections carefully, submit the necessary forms three weeks in advance of your event, and have Sober Event Monitors in place during your event.
All events with alcohol, sponsored by a student organization, must be registered on OrgSync three weeks before the event and agree to the following:
"I/we have read and understand the Louisiana laws, Tulane University policies and fraternity/sorority regulations pertaining to the possession and use of alcoholic beverages, and pertaining to student-initiated events. I/we agree to abide by all policies and regulations mentioned above. I/we understand that I/we may be held responsible for violations of University policy occurring during this event. As the host(s) of this event, I/we will be present for the duration of the event and will be available to assist University officials in resolving any issues or problems associated with the event. I/we agree that upon direction of Student Affairs Staff or other University personnel, I/we will immediately close the event and begin the clean-up process. Finally, I/we understand that failure to abide by all stipulations of this agreement will be grounds for the closing of the event, possible confiscation and disposal of alcoholic beverages, and potential disciplinary action. I/we understand that I/we cannot host this event without having this form signed by the Vice President for Student Affairs or his/her designees."
To Register Your Event:
The Alcohol Policy requires student organizations that wish to host events with alcohol to have Sober Event Monitors in place during their event. Sober Event Monitors are trained to help students make sound choices when faced with difficult decisions about alcohol use. When you register an event that will serve alcohol, you must identify a Sober Event Monitor.
The Division of Student Affairs offers Sober Event Monitor training in an interactive, discussion-based program facilitated by a certified trainer. We recommend scheduling your training well in advance of your event to allow ample time for this processing and certification to take place.
Be safe at the next party or at the bar.
