The College’s alcohol policies do not preclude fraternities and sororities from complying with the risk management guidelines imposed by their inter/national organizations and insurance carriers. The College expects F&M Fraternities and Sororities to follow all of their risk management and event policies pertaining to alcohol, drugs, hazing, sexual assault, etc. Fraternities and sororities should consult the guidelines of their inter/national organizations prior to planning an event with alcohol. If the College becomes aware or suspects that a fraternity or sorority has violated its Inter/national risk management guidelines, the chapter’s advisory team and national organization will be notified. The Fraternal Information and Programming Group has clear guidelines established. Each F&M chapter of our Inter/national Fraternites and Sororities has set polices/standards/guidelines/rules/procedures found here.
Fraternity & Sorority Group Events: Any activity for which the fraternity or sorority group pays, directly or indirectly, constitutes an event sponsored by that organization. Also, any event or activity that takes place in a living group’s house/space is the responsibility of the fraternity or sorority group. Fraternity or sorority groups that use any private, off-campus facility to host social events may be held accountable by the College for violations of City and Commonwealth laws. All off campus events must be registered with F&M Campus Programs Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life.
