Fraternity and Sorority Life

Event Approval

Make sure that your chapter has completed all the approval steps to get your event formally approved, and placed on the fraternity and sorority life calendar.

Alcohol Event Registration

To register an event where alcohol is bing served, your chapter must submit an Alcohol Event Registration form no later than 10 days prior to the event.

All events are reviewed by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life in conjunction with the Substance Abuse Prevention and Education (SAPE) staff. If there are any questions or concerns regarding your form, we will contact your designated event coordinator or your chapter president. Approved events will be listed in the FSL Weekly Newsletter.


Details to Consider

There are many details to keep in mind as you are planning an event:


In addition to selecting your location, be prepared to accommodate catering, the vendor policy and accessibility.


Determine whether your chapter will charter buses, have designated drivers or use Ubers.

Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages

Have enough food and non-alcoholic beverages on hand for the number of guests you expect to attend and the duration of the event.

Alcohol and Security

If you are serving alcohol, will it be through a third-party vendor or BYOB? How will you check IDs? Will you need extra security? How many sober monitors do you need?

Guest List

Please submit your guest list at least 48 hours prior to the event.
