Top 10 Break Smart Guidelines

  1. Buddy System
    • Hang out in groups and ALWAYS use the buddy system
    • Never allow a friend to leave a party alone
    • Always travel with a buddy in a taxi, bus, or any type of public transportation
    • If you lose your buddy please find a StudentCity.com Staff member to escort you home
  2. Wristbands
    • Do NOT remove your Studentcity.com or hotel wristband, they are used for identification purposes
    • Please use the emergency phone number in case of an EMERGENCY
  3. Scheduled/Staffed Events
    • Come to all StudentCity.com events. StudentCity.com Staff is at every event to ensure everyone is having a great time, partying responsibly and getting the service they deserve.

    • Drink responsibly if and when you choose to drink.
