Parties and Social Activities Parties are not permitted on days/nights before scheduled class days, reading days, and examination days, on actual reading days and examination days, or during break periods when classes are not in session. For purposes of definition, “parties” will be defined as any gathering of individuals which creates a festive-like atmosphere by, for example, consuming alcoholic beverages, creating noise, and by their manner, being disruptive to others. The central guiding principle in this regulation is that individuals and groups need to be considerate of others around them, and that a person’s right to study and to sleep will take precedence over another person’s desire to socialize. In particular, College disciplinary action shall be taken when conduct adversely affects the College community’s pursuit of its educational objectives. This policy is not intended to prohibit “non-alcohol” activities, sponsored by Union Board or other student organizations, which complement the College’s academic program or which are part of a balanced (i.e., weekday vs. weekend events) social environment for the College and its students. However, even these activities are not permitted on days/nights before or on reading days and examination days.

Eating Contests Eating contests encourage consumption of larger than normal portions of food in typically short periods of time. Such contests can create potential choking hazards and do not exemplify healthy eating habits or a wellness lifestyle. Therefore, eating contests are prohibited activities regardless if they take place on or off campus.
