The Ole Miss Alumni Association is proud of the university's nationally acclaimed tailgating tradition. One expectation of everyone who visits our campus is that their visit will be safe and free from hazards. Recently, unsafe conditions have been noted at home football games this season. These safety issues represent unacceptable risks of fire and electrical shock and for the safety of everyone, must be addressed.
Therefore, to ensure that the campus remains as safe as possible for all tailgaters, the university has implemented the following rules pertaining to electrical usage, effective immediately, and has requested that we forward these new policies to you for your safety:
- PORTABLE GENERATORS WITH A DECIBEL RATING OF 60 dBA OR LESS ARE NOW PERMITTED FOR TAILGATING USE.
- Power to all electrical outlets in the Grove will be turned off on game days.
- Extension cords may not be run across streets or sidewalks.
- Extension cords may not be run through open windows or doors of campus buildings. Unauthorized entry into any building to plug in extension cords will not be tolerated. Only electrical outlets on the exterior of buildings may be used by tailgaters.
- Electrical circuits must not be overloaded by plugging in multiple extension cords, splitters or power strips.
- Unauthorized tampering with the university's electrical distribution equipment, including circuit breaker panels, junction boxes or disconnects, will not be tolerated.
