    Alright, this is going to be a major rant.
    I'm finishing my first year of college. I'm moving in with two guys next year (yes I know, I'll be the rose amongst the thorns) who are second year and live off campus already (together). For the sake of this rant they're M & S. Both M and S live in the same house right now, with SIX other guys. It is generally known as the "party house" in this small town. Two of their roommates are just nuisances whom we (me, the guys, everyone else who frequents this house) choose to ignore.
    Well, the two roommates decided to have a little bonfire the other night. Which, when S and I left the house to go to the bar, was JUST a bonfire. Yes, we all knew it was going on, but it was just a bonfire. We left.
    Shortly after, S and I were stopped by campus security. They took our IDs, treated us very rudely, asked us where we lived, and were generally very unpleasant and would not answer our simple question of "why are you taking our IDs?" (Side note: my mother would beat me with a stick if I was ever anything but polite, so its not like we were being rude to security)
    WELL, low and behold S gets a notice to meet with the dean.

    And now they want to expel him from our university because they found out he knew about the fire on his property and didn't put it out! I think this is grossly unfair - he knew, but it was controlled, off of school grounds, and he had nothing to do with it whatsoever.
    If having a fire broke municipal bylaws or something, the municipality should deal with it. Is it ridiculous that the university is stepping in at this point?
    I think the roommates should be punished (I'm not going to cry if they're sent packing..) but seriously, my friend really had nothing to do with it.

    Aargh! :roll:

    I find it really weird that the school can threaten expelling him for a bonfire that is not on school grounds. Is it legal where you are to have a fire in your yard right now? Even if it isn't, I don't see how the school should have anything to do with it.

    That was my thoughts! Not only that but they aren't really giving him a proper chance to defend himself. He went to his meeting with the dean to say that we had simply walked by the fire, and had nothing to do with it one way or another.
    And they were like "Alright then, we're thinking about expelling you, we'll let you know by May 1st." So now he has to go through the exam period with the stress of possible expulsion.
    I love my school but this is just absolutely ridiculous!
