I have never been a fan of institutions taking action against students for off-campus behaviour. See story below.
A college in London, Ont., has suspended eight students following St. Patrick's Day riots over the weekend that caused an estimated $100,000 damage and led to 11 arrests.
Howard Rundle, the president of Fanshawe College, told a news conference today the administration was taking the off-campus violence seriously and would be conducting its own investigation alongside police efforts.
Under the school's student code of conduct, Fanshawe can impose academic penalties on students whose off-campus actions might affect the health and safety of others in the college community.
