All fraternities and sororities are off social probation after passing a party registration policy Wednesday afternoon, according to a press release from university spokesperson Matt Lazier.

In the release, Vice President for Student Affairs Keith Humphrey said the administration approved the policy after fraternities and sororities agreed on it.

“We believe this is an important new tool in helping our students maintain their own health and well-being, and develop good neighbor and community relations,” Humphrey said in the release.

The final draft of the policy limits the dates and times organizations can host events and prohibits drinking games, the press release states. Policies forbidding kegs and hard alcohol are also reinforced in the agreement.

The policy also lays out a judicial process in case an organization disobeys the rules.

“The first two offenses would lead to a written warning and a student Greek judicial council meeting, respectively,” the press release states. “Subsequent offenses will lead to immediate social probation. In all cases, the judicial council and Dean of Students Office would review and could issue additional sanctions based on the nature of each infraction.”

The passed policy is effective immediately and puts an end to a four-week period of social probation.
