V. Procedures Use of Campus Quadrangle

must be conducted in compliance with all state and local laws as well as in accordance with the policies of the College. For example, student behavior that violates local, state, or federal law, disturbs the peace, harms public or private property, or disrupts or interferes with the orderly processes of the College is prohibited. In addition, intentional actions which obstruct, disrupt, or physically interfere with the use of College premises, buildings, rooms, or passages, or refusal to vacate a building, street, sidewalk, driveway, or other facility of the College when directed to do so by an authorized official of the College having just cause is a violation of student conduct.

Programs and events to be held on the Campus Quadrangle must first have Administrative Council approval. Contact the vice president for student affairs to submit a request.

Rallies and Demonstrations Students and student groups may organize to rally and demonstrate on campus regarding issues and causes as long as such students are consistent with the educational mission of the College and adhere to College policy. Rallies and demonstrations including spontaneous ones are not expected to be registered or approved; however, the location is subject to approval. The College has two designated locations for rallies and demonstrations: (a) the Campus Quadrangle between the Observatory and Ferguson Hall, and (b) the steps (entrance) to Baldwin Hall. For pre-approval of programs and events to reserve the Campus Quadrangle for rallies and demonstrations, sponsors must first contact the vice president for student affairs to submit a request. If a spontaneous rally or demonstration on the Campus Quadrangle conflicts with a pre-approved program or event, the scheduled event has priority. The use of Baldwin Hall steps does not require pre-approval. Other locations than the Campus Quadrangle or Baldwin steps may be considered, but must first be approved by the vice president for student affairs. If approval for a different location is not granted and a rally or demonstration is under way, a group may be given the option to move or disband. While the College and the Division of Student Affairs support students and their efforts to peacefully gather, students must also keep in mind that all activities

Student Handbook Verification Statement All students who enter Albion College must have a signed Student Handbook Verification Statement as part of their student file.

Student Handbook Verification Statements are distributed at the beginning of the initial semester of enrollment by the Office of Residential Life.
