Well, as a student I think you are agreeing to following their rules. As a paying student, I think you agreed to following certain rules and guidelines.

From your student handbook
B. Drinking Laws
It is illegal for a person under 21 years of age to purchase, consume or possess alcoholic liquor. For example:
A person less than 21 years of age, who purchases, consumes, possesses or attempts any of the aforementioned as it relates to alcoholic liquor, is guilty of a misdemeanor.
No alcoholic liquors shall be consumed on any public highway, street, alley within this state, nor within the city of Mount Pleasant, in any public place or place of amusement or recreation open to the public not licensed by the state to sell alcoholic liquors. No person shall transport or possess any alcoholic liquor in a container that is open, uncapped, or upon which the seal is broken unless allowed by law, on the public streets, sidewalks or rights of way of the city of Mount Pleasant.



Any violation of tailgating regulations will result in immediate termination of tailgating privileges, criminal prosecution (i.e., misdemeanor ticketing), and / or disciplinary action through the CMU Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities if the violator is a CMU student.


I hear there are openings for students at most community colleges when you get done.


Take your 6 and enjoy the game.

Don't you remember being in high school and watching the hilarity that would ensue almost every year when a kid would say "You can't search my locker, that's invasion of privacy!"? This law has been challenged, and unless you're bringing some sort of new argument to the table, you'll just end up either getting kicked off property or fined some how and sent home.
That's pretty much what I learned, your 4th amendment rights are long gone at schools.

College/university = "property" of the governmental agency that operates it.

While it may be freely accessible, being instructed to leave by an agent of the owner (i.e. campus police officer) revokes your free access. Failure to follow said instructions (i.e. being where you're not allowed) = trespassing.

This whole concept of people having some legal right or claim to "public property" is mostly fairy tale and folklore. Even "public property" has an owner who can allow or disallow access at their discretion.

Try walking onto the White House grounds, prison grounds, a SAC missle base, or USAF airfield. All "public property".

i was going to bring six regardless just wanted to see if I could tell them they couldn't search my bag. Basically I just didn't like the wording that I give up a right i normally have. I guess how they worded it left a bad taste in my mouth. I probably won't be going to tailgate like the majority of students and just show up for the game.

Its a lot safer for me to walk all the way across campus after some beers then do it in a parking lot right there.
