Student Social Activity Policy 
The organization sponsoring a student function must notify the student activities director and register the date of the function at least ten days prior to the event. All students attending social functions at Patrick Henry Community College must have paid their activities fees for the current school year. There may also be an admission fee for functions. Each student is responsible for the behavior of an invited guest. All social functions must be chaperoned. The responsibility for the behavior of students and guests at a college social function lies primarily with the membership of the organization holding the function. Specifically designate a minimum of two students, or one student per fifty people expected in attendance, as student chaperones. Student chaperones will be assisted by faculty and staff of the college. All student chaperones must have the approval of the student activities director. Chaperones may require a student or guest to leave the premises whenever such individual is disruptive or acts in an unlawful manner, fails to comply with rules and regulations of the college, or unduly interferes with the activity. Chaperones who are directly involved in any serious incident should orally report it to the student activities director as soon as possible. A written description of the incident, including names of the participants, witnesses, and a summary of the action taken will be submitted to student activities director no later than 12 noon of the next working day. The faculty or staff chaperone(s) is the guest of the student organization sponsoring the activity. He or she should be present for the entire time of the social activity or make arrangements with another faculty or staff chaperone to carry out the responsibilities. A faculty or staff chaperone may make an agreement with the sponsoring student group to be present for a designated period of hours provided there is adequate faculty or staff chaperone coverage for the duration of the event. It is a student responsibility to arrange for full coverage.


Procedures for Establishing Club-Sponsored Events 
In addition to compliance with the student social activity policy, the following conditions must be met in performing a club-sponsored event: Submit all event proposals in writing to the student activities director ten days prior to the event. Include the time, place, date, and cost (total for event and per person). Ask the staff of the Public Relations and Marketing Department to assist with or review publications such as programs, flyers, press releases, or ads. The sponsoring organization is responsible for the funds raised at the event. Prior to the start of the activity, the student activities director must approve a method of assuring the accurate amount of money collected per person or couple. Deposit receipts and total funds raised in the club account within one working day after the event. Complete the proper documents for sponsoring activities and file them with the appropriate department (i.e., facilities utilization request form, internal purchase request form). Complete a Student Activities Report (SAR) following each event.
