A Proactive Model for Managing
Off-Campus Parties

Colorado State University has recently expanded its two-month pilot party registration program into an all-year initiative. Adopting a markedly different approach from initiatives at many other institutions and from CSU’s own prior efforts (such as a “party partners” program that offered students who received noise citations for off-campus parties the choice of proceeding through the standard student conduct process or attending an educational seminar), the party registration program focuses on empowering students to police their own events.

The program is designed to:

  • Give students the opportunity to self-monitor
  • Offer proactive education on managing parties responsibly
  • Offer education about the ramifications of citations, the impact of having a criminal record, etc.
  • Provide a quicker response to noise issues in the local neighborhood, in order to increase quality of life, cultivate good will, and promote less strained town/gown relationships
