Employees should note the College's alcohol policy concerning consumption of alcohol by students: Gettysburg College does not encourage the use of alcoholic beverages by students. In compliance with current Pennsylvania laws, the College does not approve of the consumption of alcohol by students (or their guests) who are under the age of 21, on or off the campus.

The Dean of the College has copies of the policy that must be followed by all groups (including groups of administrative and support staff employees) that wish to have events at which alcohol is served and at which students are present. For College events in which students are not present, the President's Office determines the policy concerning the serving of alcoholic beverages.
