Activities sponsored by the UMFK Student Senate, Student Activities Office, Orientation, and student clubs and organizations are, first and foremost, intended for UMFK students. A UMFK student is defined as any student who is currently enrolled at UMFK and is paying Student Activity fees (including Early College students. The number of credits for which a student is enrolled is irrelevant.
In some cases, guests of students are allowed to participate in activities. In such cases, the inclusion of guests will be specified in all advertising for such events. Guests for activities not involving alcohol must be 16 years old or older and guests for activities involving alcohol must be 18 years old or older. UMFK students are responsible for their guests. Guests must be accompanied by their student sponsor, must be able to provide photo identification if asked, and must adhere to all university policies. Failure to do so may result in removal from the event. Anyone who is not a guest of a student will be asked to leave an activity that is not intended for the broader community.
Community members are only allowed and encouraged to attend events intended for the broader community, such as plays, sporting events, and fine arts events, etc. Individuals under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Anyone who is under the age of 18 or who is enrolled in high school cannot attend events held in the UMFK residence halls (even if they are Early College students). In the event an activity intended for the broader community includes adult content or material, the sponsor of said activity will advertise the appropriate age “rating” of the event and may refuse admission to anyone who does not meet that requirement.
Only UMFK student activity fee paying students (including Early College students) are allowed to win prizes and raffles that are part of any given activity. Guests, students from other campuses, and UMFK faculty and staff are not eligible for prizes.
While UMFK faculty and staff are welcomed to attend student events, an admissions fee may be charged to these individuals for participation. This is left to the discretion of the organization sponsoring the event.
