Student Involvement and Leadership (925-631-4704) approves all events at which alcohol will be present when students may be in attendance. All events at which students may be in attendance (sponsored by any campus constituency) and alcohol is served must be registered and/or approved through Student Involvement and Leadership (SIL). Individuals who do not register their events, are personally liable for the behavior of any student (of age OR underage) to whom they serve any alcoholic beverages.
College departments (academic or administrative) may sponsor events where alcohol will be served and where students will be present. The sponsoring department must submit an Alcohol Service Form (see below) to Student Involvement and Leadership (SIL) ten (10) business days prior to the event. This document lists the sponsor(s) of the event and requires acknowledgment of understanding and agreement to adhere to College policies and procedures as well as approval from the department chair, dean of the school or appropriate Vice President/Provost.
No individual under the age of 21, or anyone who is obviously intoxicated may be served, or permitted to consume, alcoholic beverages at any event. Identification must be checked by entry monitors prior to being served alcohol and must consist of a valid driver’s license, passport, or official California identification card, and, for Saint Mary’s College students, a Saint Mary’s College student ID card. Students of legal age are required to wear wristbands during the event.
Student Involvement and Leadership has the right to alter or redefine, as a condition of approval, any of the above regulations as they relate to a specific department or organization. If, at any time, the well being of the community members is deemed to be threatened, appropriate and prompt action will be taken by the College.
