1. Social events include dances, parties, mixers, and similar events sponsored by student groups and student organizations.
2. Such events will be open to University students. These events may not be open to the public except by special invitation and with prior approval by the Office of Student Engagement and the dean of students.
3. If there is an admission charge for the event, all revenues collected must be deposited into an account of the student organization, a business organization, or through a University account. Under no circumstances may revenues be deposited into the personal account of an individual.
4. The director of campus safety will be responsible for determining the number of security personnel to be assigned to the event, if any. The nature of the event, location, expected attendance, beverages served, sponsoring organization, and other events, which may be occurring simultaneously, will be among the factors considered in assigning security. The security personnel will pay special attention to the surrounding campus area during and after the social event. Costs for additional security personnel may be incurred by the sponsoring student group or student organization at the discretion of the director of campus safety or the dean of students.

Questions of this nature which arise will be reviewed by the dean of students, the director of campus safety, and the Office of Student Engagement, who will jointly determine whether an offense occurred and the duration, if applicable, of the loss of the use of facilities.7. These policies may be complemented by special directives of the Office of Student Engagement or the dean of students, and/or by special facility policies and procedures.
