Student Senate: OUPD, CSSR discuss Halloween weekend safety

Student Senate met Wednesday evening to discuss safety precautions for the upcoming Halloween weekend.

Taylor Tackett, the assistant dean of students gave a presentation from The Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility, or CSSR.

Tackett told Senate some of the most common issues dealt with over Halloween weekend are fake IDs, alcohol and public urination.

Tackett said there will be no guests allowed in the residence halls, especially if the guest is not an Ohio University student. All residents will also have to wear wristbands.

“If you live on campus, you can visit another residence hall but you cannot have additional guests,” Tackett said.

Following Tackett’s presentation, OUPD Chief, Andrew Powers, gave a presentation covering the events set to take place over Halloween weekend.

Powers told Senate that the Athens Halloween festivities would be more family-friendly this year. The block party festivities are set to end at 10 p.m. with the family-oriented events taking place earlier in the day.

Powers told Senate that the Nuisance Party Ordinance will be strictly enforced and that violations can lead to a party being shut down.

“The goal is not to stop people from having fun this weekend, the goal is to encourage people to do so safely,” Powers said.

Following the presentations, Senate moved to fill two more vacancies. Jaydan Jackson and Aurora Parker were appointed Associate Justices.
