This policy applies to DRUG and ALCOHOL violations.
Amnesty does NOT apply to additional violations, such as fighting, property damage, etc.
This policy does NOT prevent action by police or other law enforcement.
You still must meet with Dean of Students Office.
May still need education requirements related to alcohol/drugs.
Repeated incidents will prompt more serious intervention. William and Mary Alcohol Policy
(From the Campus Police Website) The following general provisions apply to individual possession or use of alcoholic beverages on College property, on property owned or controlled by the College, and at College sponsored events:
No person who is less than 21 years of age may purchase, possess, or consume any type of alcoholic beverage.
No person may be in a public area in an intoxicated condition.
No person may possess an open container of alcohol in a public area, including, but not limited to, hallways, stairwells, and other common areas of residential facilities.
No person may provide alcohol to any person who is less than 21 years of age.
No person may bring any type of alcoholic beverage into an Alcoholic Beverage Control licensed facility or area, and no person may take alcoholic beverages out of an Alcoholic Beverage Control licensed facility or area.
No person who appears to be intoxicated or is intoxicated may be sold or served alcoholic beverages.
No person may drive a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or with a blood alcohol level (as shown by a lawfully administered blood or breath test) in excess of that permitted for drivers by Virginia law.
No person shall participate in progressive drinking parties. The following additional provisions also apply to possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages in College: Alcohol is not permitted in any individual room in a freshman residence hall unless one of the residents is at least 21 years of age and the alcohol belongs to that resident. Further, alcohol is not permitted in the public areas of freshman residences nor may functions with alcohol be scheduled in freshman residence halls.
Empty alcohol containers in residence hall facilities may constitute evidence of alcohol consumption or possession, and may, therefore, be subject to inspection and seizure, and residents may be subject to disciplinary action. Any person who desires to host and have alcohol available at an event in his or her private residence hall room, apartment or lodge must register the event with the Office of Student Activities if the number of individuals present is more than eight over the room, apartment, or lodge occupancy. This means that if it is likely that more than eight people in addition to the number of residents of the room, apartment or lodge will be present, approval for the event must be obtained. Aat no time may the maximum capacity restrictions of the room, apartment or lodge be exceeded. Common containers of alcohol, including but not limited to, kegs, pony kegs, beer balls, box wines and containers greater than 750 ml., and mixed alcoholic punch are prohibited in any residential facility, whether the containers are empty or full. Special permission may be granted for the use of common container alcohol at special functions approved by the Office of Student Activities. Scenarios "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" Feb 17-19, 8 pm, $1, in the Studio Theatre. Come out and support your sisters! Email Victoria if you want to be a Big! Remember that the Greek Leadership Institute will be from 1-4:30pm in the Sadler Center. There will be free pizza and drinks along with a raffle for free letter sweatshirts. Please email Katrina (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in going by Wednesday! On Saturday, February 26, there will be a Mary Kay skin care party at the house at 3 PM. Come out and learn about good skin care from our lovely sister Kim Miller! Save the date - on Sunday, March 27, we will be having our Sisterhood Retreat! Attendance is mandatory for all sisters. The following P-H-I-M-U groups have been put together in order to provide an easy way to organize sisters for attending events on campus. Every week an email will be sent out to the chapter stating which event group P is scheduled to go to, which one H is supposed to go to, etc. These are meant to be a fun and easy way to meet up with sisters, but they aren't strict! If anyone would like to join another group or attend more than one event, that's perfectly fine. It's also a great way to introduce PNMs to other sisters—just bring them to your P-H-I-M-U event! P

There will be an official sign-up sheet going around with the design for our soft-letter PR shirts! There will be your choice of pink, green, or blue t-shirt—we want to stand out during formal recruitment next semester! The price for each shirt is $10. Everyone should "like" W&M Greek Life on Facebook. It's a great resource to know what is happening in the Panhellenic world. Panhellenic is creating an "I am a sister campaign." I need one new member, a person on the executive board, and another lovely sister to volunteer to be interviewed for this project. You just have to talk about some of your favorite Phi Mu experiences and you may be videotaped. Several Roundtables are being held this month. These are an excellent way to put your 5 cents into what is happening not only in Phi Mu, but in the Greek community as a whole. If there are any sisters who have gone above and beyond and whom you feel deserve recognition, let the sisterhood know! Email her name and why she is a Shining Star to email@example.com. There is a $500 scholarship from the Tidewater Alumnae Panhellenic Association.
