Definition of a FS Event/Activity

A chapter social event is characterized and defined by, but not limited to the following:
A.  Indications of advertisement to chapter:

- Information concerning the event was announced in a chapter meeting
- Information concerning the event was posted to the chapter house
- Information concerning the event was e-mailed to chapter distribution list
- Information concerning the event was posted on the chapter Facebook page or to other on-line communities

B.  Hosted at fraternity house or annex. An annex is defined as any residence of 10 or more members of a group.
C.  Many event attendees are from the chapter. The College considers 10 or more members at an event to be considered an fraternity/sorority event.
D.  Any event an observer would associate with the fraternity or sorority chapter.
 
This list is not exhaustive. If in doubt, the “Duck Theory” will supersede all other event definitions. (If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.)
