Lourdes University Campus Event Policies
In an attempt to actively engage all students at Lourdes University, both traditional and non-traditional, Lourdes holds many activities and events throughout the year. Some events are geared towards families and some events are not.
Campus events that begin before 7 p.m. are generally open to students and their immediate families. Lourdes defines immediate family for this purpose as significant other, children, and legal dependents. Students who bring their own children or dependents to these events are expected to keep them in their presence and under a reasonable amount of control. If an event starting before 7 is not open to families it will be advertised as such
Campus events that begin at 7 p.m. or later are normally restricted to students and one guest, who must be at least 16 years of age. Lourdes faculty and staff reserve the right to dismiss guests of students that are unruly or disrespectful. If a student brings a guest to any Lourdes event, that guest must be in the presence of the student at all times while at the event. The Lourdes student is responsible for any damage that may be caused by their guest.
When food or refreshments are served at a Lourdes campus event, all food must stay within the event location, removing food from the location is prohibited. Students attempting to take food away may be asked to leave from the event.
For the purpose of this policy, athletic events are considered public and as such are open to the Lourdes Community including children and other dependents. As with other events, children are required to be under the direct supervision of their parent or guardian while at athletic events.
Lourdes Events and Activities Planning (LEAP) Event Policy
Any student, regardless of age, is not allowed to consume alcoholic beverages during a LEAP on campus or off campus event. An on campus event is defined as an event on the Lourdes University campus. An off campus event is defined as an event that occurs from travel (for example, a road trip). Implications from consuming alcoholic beverages can include, but are not limited to, not allowing the student to participate in future LEAP events. Additional ramifications can be determined by the chaperones and/or Lourdes University staff, administration, or faculty.
