From the Alcohol Policies portion of the RSO Handbook:
Below are alcohol policies that are pertinent to RSOs; however RSOs should be aware of all university alcohol policies as listed in the FSU Student Code of Conduct. Please read the code online at http://srr.fsu.edu/conduct_code.html
The alcohol policy pertaining to all members, groups, events, and organizations in the University Community states:
No individual under the legal drinking age (minimum of 21years of age) may serve, sell, consume or possess alcohol on university properties, except to the extent allowed by law within licensed premises or designated areas of the university.
No individual may serve or otherwise provide alcohol to persons under the legal drinking age.
All members of the campus community (students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests) must adhere to all applicable state and local laws and university regulations related to the sale and use of alcohol. They include, but are not limited to the following:
It is unlawful for any person to aid or abet an underage person in the purchase or attempt to obtain alcoholic beverages.
It is unlawful for any underage person to falsify a driver’s license or other identification document in order to obtain or attempt to obtain alcoholic beverages.
It is unlawful for any person to permit use of his/her driver’s license or any other identification document by an underage person to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages.
No person may bring any type of alcoholic beverage into a licensed facility or area nor may any person take alcoholic beverages out of the licensed facility or area.
Transportation of all alcoholic beverages on campus shall be in unopened and unobservable containers.
Damage to or destruction of property, or injury to person(s), which is caused by or can be shown to be related to the consumption of alcohol will be subject to disciplinary action, as will any other violation of this rule.
Promotional guidelines in regard to alcohol state:
The on-campus promotion of activities or events shall not advertise alcohol or sponsorship by alcohol marketers without prior written approval of the Vice President for Student Affairs. Events that seek advertising approval must meet the following requirements:
Alcohol shall not be used as an inducement to participate in a university event and may not be offered as a prize or gift in any form of contest, raffle or competition. Social events that encourage drinking, drinking contests, or drunkenness, and the advertisement of such events, are prohibited.
Alcohol advertising on campus or in campus media, including that which promotes events as well as product advertising, shall not portray drinking as a solution to personal or academic problems of students or as an enhancement to social, sexual, or academic status.
Advertising for any university event where alcoholic beverages are served shall mention the availability of non-alcoholic beverages as prominently as alcohol, i.e., beverages.
Promotional materials, including advertising for any university event, shall not make reference to the amount of alcoholic beverages available. This includes references to kegs or open bars.
As a community we believe:
Students should not be demeaned or exposed to harm when
pursuing involvement in campus life.
All students involved in social activities at Florida State University should visit http://hazing.fsu.edu
to learn about our community’s strong stance against hazing behavior.
On the web site, students can hear student leaders discuss the issue, read Florida’s criminal hazing law and FSU’s policy, test their knowledge about hazing information and resources, report incidents they observe in the community, and list their name and organization’s commitment to providing a safe and hazing-free environment.
