Alcohol Policy : 

Alcohol Free Housing

In 2001, the Delta Sigma Phi took the bold step to initiate its Alcohol Free Housing Policy. This means that, “Alcohol may not be present at any time on a property owned, rented or otherwise used as chapter or new chapter facilities.”

Chapters interested in obtaining an exemption to this policy should work with their respective Alumni Corporation Boards to apply for a waiver. Most chapters are eligible for a waiver to the policy if they meet the following criteria:

  • The chapter participates in educational programming that reviews (a) the Delta Sigma Phi Risk Management Policy, (b) the physiological effects of alcohol use, and (c) the legal and liability issues surrounding alcohol use.
  • The chapter has exceeded the undergraduate all-men’s grade point average from the previous academic term.
  • The chapter has no IFC (or equivalent), university or Fraternity risk management violations for the previous 12 months.
  • The chapter has a zero balance due to the Headquarters at the time of application.
