Fraternity and Sorority Life

Event Management

Make sure that your chapter has completed all the steps to get your event formally notified and placed on the fraternity and sorority life calendar.

Event Notification

Chapters must submit an Event Notification form no later than 10 days prior to the event and a Guest List up to 24 hours prior to the event. This form should be submitted for all social functions, out-of-town events, tailgates, and large-scale philanthropy events.

Details to Consider

There are many details to keep in mind as you are planning an event:

Review the safety guidelines provided to all UofSC student organizations by the Leadership and Service Center.

In addition, review the event planning guide provided by Holmes-Murphy.

In addition to selecting your location, be prepared to accommodate catering, the vendor policy and accessibility.

Determine whether your chapter will charter buses, have designated drivers or use Ubers.

Have enough food and non-alcoholic beverages on hand for the number of guests you expect to attend and the duration of the event.

If you are serving alcohol, will it be through a third-party vendor or BYOB? How will you check IDs? Will you need extra security? How many sober monitors do you need?
