A. For all parties which are held on Fraternity Row, the music (whether a band or
stereo) shall be over by 12:00 a.m. on Thursday nights and 2:00 a.m. for Friday and
Saturday nights. For parties using stereos or acoustic music, the volume must be
kept at a reasonable level. The use of outdoor speakers must also be kept at a
reasonable level. This level will be determined by Campus Police.
B. Noise complaints will be handled as follows:
Upon the first complaint, the responding Campus Police Officer will contact
a fraternity officer, and if necessary, request the volume level be lowered to
a reasonable level. All this information will be documented to include the
fraternity member responsible for the party, time of complaint, and com-
The second complaint will be handled in the same manner as the first
complaint, pending cooperation by the fraternity to address the complaint.
Upon the third complaint, the Campus Police Officer will terminate the
party. The information will be forwarded to the Dean of Students for appro-
priate sanctions as specified in the IFC bylaws. If any noise complaint is re-
ceived after 2:00 a.m., the stereo or acoustic music will be automatically
shut off. Campus Police will verify the identity of the caller in order to in-
sure the complaint is legitimate.

no exceptions.
D. If a fraternity is hosting a band party, they are required to have a Campus Police
Officer present during the hours of the operation of the band. The Campus Police
Officer serves as a liaison between the complainant, the fraternity, and the band
in the case that a noise complaint is registered. The officer’s duty is to monitor the
noise level, to assist with wristband distribution, and to insure that the band co-
operates with the fraternity’s request to lower their volume if the need arises. The
Shift Supervisor will be the person responsible, after close and continual monitor-
ing, for shutting off the music if necessary.
