Bring Your Own (BYO) events place a greater level of responsibility upon the individual supplying his or her own alcohol, but this fact does not reduce the obligation of the host/sponsor organization to control the event and to enforce College and state regulations.
1. All aspects of the college alcohol policy shall apply to BYO events, except where these BYO regulations amend the general guidelines.
2. All BYO events for which an organization advertises or expects more than 30 people must be registered in the Patterson Court office and will follow risk management standards just like every other social event where alcohol is present.
Alcohol limits for registered BYO events are in proportion to the number of 21 year olds at the event. The limit per 21-year-old is (6) 12-ounce beers, or one (1) pint of liquor, or 750 ml unfortified wine or champagne, which will be checked in at the bar; grain alcohol and bulk containers (including but not limited to kegs, punch bowls, Jell-O, pony kegs, beer balls, funnels, coolers, or trash cans) are expressly forbidden.
3. Any unused alcohol shall not become the property of the host organization.
4. Violations are referred to the Patterson Court Judiciary Board.
