Rules defined for alcohol
violations on campus
by Robert Holland
Clarion Staff Writer
Many students have asked about the
“new” rules that are now in effect here at
Brevard College. According to Dean of
Campus Life Steve Martin, there are not
any that are “new,” just old ones that
have been redefined.
Because the rules were unclear,
conflicts occurred last year between the
campus life staff and the students, which
caused some confusion. Most of the
puzzlement occurred with policies
concerning alcohol. The rules now
clearly specify the following:
1. If numerous students are caught
with alcohol in a room, ALL of the
students in the room will be written up,
regardless of whether they were drinking
2. If a student’s roommate has
alcohol in their room and is caught with
it, BOTH roommates will be written up
for possession. If this occurs while one
roommate is out of town, and the
roommate has no knowledge of the
alcohol, the absent student will still be
written up but no charge will be filed.
3. This year the North Carolina
fireworks law was changed to make
them legal to possess. At Brevard
College, however, they are not
permitted at all on the campus.
4. When a student is found guilty
and is given service hours and/or fine,
they are also given a deadline to
complete the hours and pay the fine.
Martin said that last year many students
finished the year without ever
completing their sanctions.
The men and women who are in
charge of creating the rules are the
campus life staff, SGA, and a review
board that meets in the Spring. So lar
this year the number of violations has
been very few. In the first thirty days
there were no alcohol policies broken,
according to the Office of Campus Life.
