WSAP Good Neighbor Initiatives | Good Student Neighbors...
Good neighbors pledge to abide by local ordinances, be a good steward of the community, and not provide alcohol or allow illegal substances at his/her residence.
What Students Can Do:
— Respect your neighbors and landlord. Remember that you live in a residential community comprised of children and adults.
— Familiarize yourself with North Carolina law, the student code of conduct, and your lease agreement to keep you and your guests safe.
— Contact your neighbors to let them know you’ll be having guests over, and ask if there is anything you can do as a host to make it easier for them.
— Limit alcohol consumption, and serve non-alcoholic beverages and food in addition to any alcohol
— Develop a guest parking plan so cars are not towed or cited.
— Do not promote alcohol as the center of the event by encouraging guests to engage in drinking games or serving alcohol in large open “punch bowls”
— Plan how people will be getting home. You may be held liable for the actions of people who leave your party intoxicated. Take care of your guests!
— Clean up any mess your event creates – both inside and outside of your house. Take a moment to make sure your neighbors’ property was unaffected by your party.
