During the spread of coronavirus, a number of other schools have had to roll back plans for in-person classes after outbreaks of COVID-19 flared up in the first weeks of the fall semester. But, at least thirty-six students at Purdue University were suspended after violating the “Protect Purdue Pledge”
Known, they attended a gathering on Wednesday night. An independent student newspaper at Purdue reported that police received a call about a large party at approximately 11 p.m. on Wednesday night.
As a way to stop the spread of the coronavirus, the university makes rules for the students to avoid a gathering or a party.
At that time, Purdue University has been clear to its students about the Protect Purdue Plan and the expectations they would need to follow if they made the decision to be on campus this fall during the spread of coronavirus.
As quoted News24xx.com from MSN, the spokesperson of the university confirmed that the party was held by the Circle Pines Cooperative. But the spokesperson did not specify the duration of the suspensions but said students had the right to appeal.
Associate Vice Provost and Dean of Students Katie Sermersheim said in a statement, “Everything we have done, the months of planning to give our students the opportunity to continue their educational pursuits in person can be undone in the blink of an eye, with just one party or event that does not follow the rules and guidelines.”
