We Are Unified in Our Efforts to Protect USC Students
Wednesday, October 23, 2013
We would like to clarify USC’s social events policy in light of recent news reports. The university has not changed any policies, but is strictly enforcing existing policies regarding parties on and near campus during school nights. We took this step together because we do not want students to get hurt. While these policies are being strictly enforced, we will have time for an open and thorough conversation on the root problem of excessive drinking. All students, including the Greek leadership, and the university are committed to making the campus a safe and an enjoyable place to socialize. Student government, Greek leadership and the administration are unified in our efforts to protect USC students. In the coming weeks, we intend to host public forums to examine this challenge and move forward with long-term, comprehensive initiatives.
