Cal Poly is considering party policy guidelines for its university Greek system that would essentially change the nature of future fraternity and sorority gatherings -- banning drinking games, kegs and hard alcohol while limiting festivities to four-hour stints, according to a draft proposal obtained by Mustang News, the student-run newspaper.

Cal Poly's Greek organizations have yet to agree to a policy. They're on social probation as of Friday as fraternity and sorority leaders continue to negotiate an agreement with the university on a party registration policy.

The probation kicked in at 5 p.m. that day after the organizations and university failed to formalize a draft of the party registration policy and guidelines.

University spokesman Matt Lazier said Monday that Cal Poly won't discuss specifics of the ongoing negotiations with the Greek organizations.
