Earlier this week, LSU prohibited tailgating for their Greek community due to safety concerns.
According to Greek Life officials, the university’s current contract with Lofton Staffing expired and the company refuses to continue their security services.
LSU students remain mixed on the institute’s move to limit where they can tailgate through the end of the college football season. In an effort to make amends, the college is now allowing tailgating in other areas on campus.
The new restrictions include the following:
- No game day event will be allowed at any fraternity or sorority residences.
- The student organization must provide notification of a game day event to the Deans Office through Tigerlink no less than five business days prior. (The five business day deadline will be relaxed for any LSU home football game within five days of issuance of this supplement.)
- That notification must include: the campus location of the game day event and a permitted alcohol certificate (as defined by PS-78).
- Any other alcohol permit other that the one defined by PS-78 will not be prohibited.
- The conduct of students and student organizations at any game day event are subject to the Student Code of Conduct, state and local law.
We’re told tailgating is still forbidden on parade grounds to members of the Greek life community for the remainder of football season.
It has been determined that the university is still in active pursuit of a new security contractor.
