Bicycles may not be transported through or stored in Atwood Memorial Center. Refer to St. Cloud State University Parking Regulations regarding bicycles.
Rollerblades and skateboards can't be used in Atwood or on the front porch, stairs, or handrails.
Atwood Memorial Center does not allow the burning of incense, sage or ceremonial open flame except for religious ceremonies at scheduled events, and only then with advance approval.
The burning of small amounts of incense for religious purposes during a scheduled event is allowed only when the following requirements are met.
Requests for burning of incense, sage or open flame made less than one week in advance may be denied because of logistical problems.
On occasion there will be special situations where the volume of combustibles will be sufficient to trigger a false alarm in our fire safety system. These situations will be examined on a case-by-case basis by the Assistant Vice President for Facilities Management depending on the requested room and smoke source. Special permission may be granted and special precautions taken. These precautions may involve assigning an Atwood or university employee with a radio and fire extinguisher to the room of the ceremony. The employee must be trained in fire suppression and Atwood's emergency procedures as he/she functions as both the fire alarm system and fire suppression system. These special preparations for large volumes of smoke may be arranged on very special occasions but not for frequent or weekly events. When there is not adequate staff in the building to cover the special fire alarm/suppression role, additional staff will be brought in and charged back to the sponsoring group. Due to staffing requirements, requests for this level of smoke must be received at least one week prior to the event.
In order to facilitate ceremonial burning of sage, incense, sweet grass, cedar, etc., by cultural groups within Atwood Memorial Center, the Atwood Center Council in conjunction with American Indian Student Office and the American Indian Center has developed the following guidelines:
Pyrotechnics, flash pots or open flames at any concert or entertainment event is prohibited.
Refer to the University's Student Code of Conduct.
Refer to the Department of Campus Involvement's Student Organizations Guidebook.
Tobacco and E-cigs are prohibited. See Tobacco Free Policy.
