Operational procedures and regulations regarding use and possession of alcoholic beverages by students
(A) Purpose. Group events at which beer is served and which are held outside the licensed areas must be registered with the center for student involvement ("CSI") and adhere to the following procedures.
(B) Initial scheduling procedures.
(1) Information must be provided on the site, which must also be reserved with the scheduling office if it is to be held outside a residence hall, name of organization, date and time and charges, if any.
(2) The forms provided must be signed by a representative of the group, its advisor or residence hall staff member and a member of the CSI staff before the registration is considered complete.
(3) At the time of the registration, the group will be informed of its responsibilities/ limitations by a member of the CSI or residence hall staff.
A copy of this information/registration form must be displayed at the site of the event; another copy will be kept in CSI and/or the residence services office.
(4) For events held outdoors, the group may be required, at its expense, to have snow fencing erected. This requirement will be dependent on the location, time and number of participants expected at the event.
(5) Events at which an admission fee or charge for beer is made require the processing of an "F-Permit" application with the Ohio beverage commission. CSI will help the group in processing this application, for which a charge is made. At least three weeks are needed to process this application. CSI will inform the Kent State University police department of all such events registered prior to the event.
