Filling open dates for events will be conducted on a “first come, first serve” basis. The event must be schedule by the Tuesday prior. There is no limit to how far in advance an event can be registered. The approved registration form must be posted on the house and must be visible from the street. (See event registration form)

Any organization hosting a social gathering that fits the requirements to be registered, but is not, will be in violation of the Social Event Policies. If the organization is accused of hosting an unregistered social event, it must first meet with the Greek life staff.

However, the organization reserves the right to convene the judicial board for the purposes of assessing innocence or guilt (See Judicial Policies).
