Boston University to Suspend Students Who Attend Large Parties

Boston University to Suspend Students Who Attend Large Parties

“Students living on campus who are found to be in violation of Elmore’s guidelines will be forced to move out of housing and off campus for the remainder of the school year.”

Campus life sounds like so much fun this year, doesn’t it?

WHDH News in Boston reports:

Boston University says it will suspend students who attend or host large parties

Boston University announced Wednesday that it plans to suspend any student who fails to “take COVID-19 seriously” by attending or hosting a large party amid the ongoing pandemic.

“There will be a few students who won’t take COVID-19 seriously and their stay in our community will be short-lived,” Kenneth Elmore, Associate Provost and Dean of Students, said in an email to students. “If you host or attend a large off-campus or on-campus gathering, social or party, you will be suspended from Boston University.”

Elmore warned that any student who risks exposing themselves and others to the coronavirus will face disciplinary action.

“I’ve incorporated a lot more planning in my socializing to be more thoughtful, less hapless and more diligent about thinking about others,” Elmore added. “Our actions have consequences. We have got to use our collective power to maintain an environment where we can all live and learn.”

Students who attend or host a party of 25 or more people will be suspended through the fall semester, and will not be able to attend classes in-person or remotely.

Student organizations, club sports, or teams that host large gatherings will also be subject to discipline.

Students living on campus who are found to be in violation of Elmore’s guidelines will be forced to move out of housing and off campus for the remainder of the school year.

I wonder if Elmore and Raimondo will meet each other while in line at the employment department.

I am noticing far fewer people in Portland having a negative reaction when I use the term “scamdemic” in public.

What about students who organize, or participate in riots “of 25 or more people”?

Why should a 20 year old take covid seriously? It isn’t dangerous to them.

    Mmmmgggggh. Every week, I have to listen to my housebound 101-year-old mother in Florida go on about how another cute two-year-old died of Wuhan in Florida that week. I need to find her a cable package with no news channels.

      If toddlers were dying every week elsewhere in the world we wouldn’t hear the end of it. I strongly suspect that the Florida media is lying about that (or covid being the listed cause of death is the lie). Palm Beach and Broward counties need media cover for their ridiculous extensions of lockdowns and public mask wearing mandates.

Popcorn pong!

I went to BU in the 80’s and was a bleeding-heart liberal at the time. I’ve been a #WalkAway since the truth about Benghazi came out. I stopped donating to BU around the same time when I realized how they push the liberal agenda.

The draconian actions of businesses and educational organizations everywhere to combat the Covid-1984 is absolutely ridiculous. We never shut down for the flu. We did not shut down when Ebola was in our country. Masks don’t work, and the CDC finally admitted that the numbers have been fudged.

I would pull my kid out of that school immediately and sue them for not providing the education that I paid for. Universities are a waste of money and are a center of leftist indoctrination for young adults. Go to trade or technical school; you’ll get a MUCH better education, you’ll have a job when you come out, and you’ll earn a lot more than most college grads earn.
