Fredonia has an obligation to provide a safe environment for faculty, staff, students, and visitors. The use of skateboards on campus infringes on our ability to fulfill this obligation. It creates a danger to pedestrians on campus and causes the defacing of campus buildings.
II. POLICY STATEMENT
It is the policy of Fredonia, that no person shall use, operate, or ride on a skateboard in any public parking area within the college campus, inside any college building or facility, on any outdoor stairway, plaza, wall, or loading dock. Furthermore, such activity is prohibited on the outdoor track, tennis courts, and in front of any entrance to or exit from the buildings on campus.
Penalties for violation are as follows:
1st Offense: Confiscation of the skateboard for a period of (5) days. For non-students, a parent or guardian must claim the equipment.
2nd Offense: Confiscation of the offending equipment for a period of fifteen (15) days. College students will be referred to the college judicial system. Non-students will be notified that they are banned from campus. If they return they will be arrested for trespassing.
3rd Offense: Confiscation of the offending equipment for a period of six (6) months. College students will be referred to the college judicial system. Non-students will be arrested for trespassing.
