The Social Event Operating Procedure assists with the planning and execution of social events ensuring safe events are being facilitated. Following this procedure promotes compliance with federal, state, and local laws, as well as USF's alcohol and drug policy reducing the risk incurred on all chapter members, chapter officers, and volunteers at any event associated with a fraternity or sorority from USF.
