“according to five freshmen on campus with knowledge of the matter”
Three students invited three other students to a ‘party’ and people were punished for this. College life sounds absolutely miserable this year.
The College Fix reports:
Harvard punishes students for breaking COVID rules by hosting six-person ‘party’
Harvard University recently sent three students home for hosting a party in September that the school said broke the Ivy League institution’s coronavirus rules.
What was the egregious offense?
The students allegedly hosted three students for a party, if you can even call it that, in their residence hall. Courses are online this semester, but the university’s freshmen are living on campus.
The Harvard Crimson reports:
Harvard sent home three freshmen living in Mather House last weekend after finding that they hosted a party in the house with at least three other guests last month, according to five freshmen on campus with knowledge of the matter.
The students’ departure marks the first confirmed case of Harvard College’s Community Council disciplining undergraduates for violating its residential compact.
Harvard spokesperson Rachael Dane wrote in an email that the College does not comment on the status of individual students.
Because all classes this semester are virtual, students sent home from campus may continue their coursework from afar. The College charges those students — who can be dismissed from the dorms for up to two semesters — room and board only for the portion of the year in which they lived in residence.
