IFC Daylong Policy Updates for This Season

Spring at Penn State brings a number of familiar things: The squirrels start to reappear around campus, picnics on Old Main lawn and, of course, daylongs. But in recent years, one of the main concerns for Greeks and geeds alike is whether or not daylongs will continue to be a staple of springtime at Penn State. After the issues surrounding the daylong policy last year and the fact that daylongs were banned entirely two years ago, things have settled down and the daylong is back—with some restrictions.

IFC President Dan Combs explains the daylong policy, which is outlined in the IFC Constitution.

“We ask that chapters submit a request to hold the event two weeks prior to the intended date of the function,” said Combs. “In their request they must include a meticulously detailed risk management plan, following a template we provided to all the IFC Fraternities, that shows the chapter has a clear understanding of how the event will be managed and is able to host the event responsibly.”

Another aspect of the policy is open communication with the fraternity alumni, making sure that they are completely aware of what will be occurring that weekend, that risks are outlined and, finally, that the alumni board approves of the event.

“Furthermore, the chapters must use wristbands for their guests that are provided by the IFC to limit occupancy at these events, which is one of the main concerns of the State College Police Department and the IFC,” said Combs.

The last important piece of the daylong puzzle is to make sure that the event lasts four hours and takes place between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. So for now, daylongs are back. The better students follow these rules, the longer daylongs will live on at Penn State.
