Purdue University suspends 36 students for alleged party violations


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University has suspended 36 students for attending a party on the same day that President Mitch Daniels made it a violation to host or attend a party not following social distancing and mask guidelines.

A Purdue spokesman says the Circle Pines Cooperative, an off-campus residence, and the attendees of an event Wednesday night there received summary suspensions for violating the Protect Purdue Pledge. In Bloomington, Indiana University administrators say they’re “actively investigating the circumstances surrounding a large, off-campus student party in Bloomington last night.”

The school said suspensions were possible.
