Campus Policies

Burning of Sage, Sweet Grass, Cedar, Incense, and Candles

Use of sage, sweet grass, cedar and incense may be permitted in non-residence hall campus facilities when a special request / facility usage form has been submitted and approved one week in advance of the activity. Approval for special use must be made by contacting the Assistant Director of Student Life in the Hobson Memorial Union, 755-3763, completing the Facility Usage form, and securing written approval. 

Candles
For safety reasons, the burning of candles is prohibited in all residence hall rooms and nonresidence hall campus facilities. There may be occasions, however, when candles are felt to be an essential part of a campus activity. In those instances, special use approval may be granted by the university when requested and approved through the Facility Usage form, a minimum of a week in advance of the event. Special use requests must be made by contacting the Assistant Director of Student Life in the Hobson Memorial Union, 755-3763, completing the Facility Usage form, and securing written approval.
