Tailgating Policy

The following tailgating etiquette will be in effect beginning the 2012 athletic season to ensure a safe and enjoyable tailgating experience for our fans. The Department of Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation encourages fans to arrive early, tailgate, and enjoy Fighting Scots Athletics.

Our students, faculty, staff and fans are all valuable members of The College of Wooster family and your attendance and participation at the games is a big part of our success. In order to make your attendance and that of those with and around you a positive one, our number one priority for tailgating is for your safety. Enjoy the game and GO SCOTS!

1. ALCOHOL

Please be respectful of other tailgaters around you and remember that all students are subject to the Social Regulations and Policies stated in the Scots Key; alcohol is not permitted in open public areas. Kegs will NOT be permitted. All others are subject to rules and regulations of Ohio, Wooster, The College of Wooster and The College of Wooster Department of Physical Education, Athletics and Recreation.

2. NO GAS POWER GENERATORS ALLOWED

For safety reasons, gas power generators are not allowed.

3. GRILLS

Please be advised, personal propane/gas grills will be allowed. However, we ask that propane tanks be limited to the 5-10 gallon size.

4. NO GLASS CONTAINERS

For safety considerations, we ask that all tailgaters use cans and/or cups only- NO GLASS, PLEASE!!!

5. TENTS

All tents are restricted to grassy areas- no tents should be erected in the parking lot due to space limitations and for emergency access into and through the parking lot.

6. NO EXTERNAL STEREO SYSTEMS ALLOWED

Out of courtesy to others using the parking lots, only portable radio/stereo units will be permitted. For safety reasons, house stereo units requiring an external power source will not be allowed.
