Grinnell College Alcohol Agreement Event Information Form
Please read through all of the event hosting guidelines before fully completing the Alcohol Agreement application below.
21 or more guests: Alcohol Agreements must be completed by 5 p.m. on the Friday one full week prior to a large event.
20 or fewer guests: Alcohol Agreements must be completed by 5 p.m. the Wednesday prior to a small event.
Upon submitting a completed Alcohol Agreement application, the event staff designated on the application will be sent an email outlining the terms and responsibilities of each position. The event staff members must reply to this email individually confirming that they agree to the terms it contains, before event approval is granted.
Requests for exceptions to any of the alcohol agreement policies are rarely granted, but can be directed to Jennifer Jacobsen and Adam Gilbert for initial review, before final approval by the Dean of Students.
The total Alcohol Agreements on any given weekend night, collectively, may include up to four (4) kegs (or equivalent).
Students may not purchase alcohol on campus (except for personal consumption in Lyle’s or at professional events hosted by the College with Catering Services) nor may fees be charged or collected for the distribution of alcohol on campus.
Consistent with harm-reductive practices, common sources involving hard liquor (e.g., punchbowls or pre-mixed drinks) are not permitted.
Hard liquor may be served individually at registered events provided the Alcohol Agreement conditions are met. Drinks must be individually measured and poured directly in front of the students so they know contents and quantity.
