In accordance with the university policy and to assure a safer and more healthful environment for everyone, smoking, burning incense and candles are not permitted in any building throughout the residence hall complex. The NO SMOKING policy does include all student rooms. Residents who do smoke must do so outside the residence halls. Smoking in outside stairwells or in close proximity to student rooms is not permitted. Those concerned with the effects of second hand smoke will appreciate your consideration. Persons interested in assistance to quit smoking will find useful programs and information available at Student Health Services.
POSSESSION AND CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE PROHIBITED
IN AND AROUND RESIDENCE HALLS.

Note: If the student does not meet these policy requirements, the steps will carry over from one year to the next.
In addition to university disciplinary action, violators are also
subject to immediate citation by the University Police that may
result in Municipal Court fines of $150 or more and/ or loss of
driving privileges. Your personal liability for the conduct of your
guests or anyone you provide alcoholic beverages can be yet another
reason to follow all rules and policies.
While the clear intention of these policies is to meet federal requirements for colleges and universities, there is an expressed desire to create a quieter and better-suited environment for education.
