Does 11 people hanging out count as a “party?”
Northeastern University dismissed 11 students Friday after they held a small party in a hotel room Wednesday, the school announced in a press release. The 11 students “are no longer part of the Northeastern community for the fall semester.”
All 11 kids were first-years and part of a special one-semester program that cost $36,500, the Boston Globe reported. Northeastern is not refunding their money.
The students were enrolled in a study abroad program, but because of the coronavirus pandemic, “abroad” became the Westin Hotel in downtown Boston, about a mile from campus, according to the release.
