Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the first instance of a university suspending students this year for ignoring coronavirus rules.
The Boston Globe reports 11 Northeastern University students have been booted from campus. And they won’t get their money back.
The students were caught at the Westin Hotel, which is being used as a temporary dormitory this semester, on Wednesday night without masks and not social distancing, according to university spokeswoman Renata Nyul.
The dismissed students will not be allowed to take courses from home this semester but will be permitted to return in the spring, Nyul said. They were part of a special one-semester program for freshmen that was prepaid and cost $36,500. That money will not be refunded.
