Summary

As students transition to college life, some will be at greater risk for developing potentially dangerous drinking patterns than others.

Students StudyingBefore coming to campus, students and parents should be familiar with NMC's policies relating to alcohol. Here are a few things to remember as you talk to your sons and daughters about drinking at college:

Drinking is not permitted on campus at NMC. For a complete review of NMC's policy, please visit. Students should also be aware of local laws and policies practiced in Omaha which may differ from their home communities. The Omaha Police Department regularly conducts patrols to identify and ticket parties causing disruptions. Omaha police regularly issue tickets for MIP, DUI and procuring alcohol to minors.On August 30, 2015, Nebraska's Good Samaritan law will take effect.

This policy encourages individuals to call 911 for medical help when witnessing or experiencing acute alcohol intoxication without the fear of prosecution for minor in possession. The policy provides limited immunity for both the caller and the acutely intoxicated person. The Good Samaritan law is essential to ensuring that people are able to stay alive and receive help when they are in trouble. Please encourage your son or daughter to become familiar with the new law and take swift action whenever they are concerned about another person's well-being. Not following campus and community policy could result in a campus code of conduct violation and/or legal ramifications. View the code of conduct here.
