Fanshawe to punish students involved in weekend melee

November 2, 2009

Fanshawe College president Howard Rundle warns that any students implicated in this weekend's street riot and violent clash with police near the college will face academic sanctions, up to and including suspensions and expulsion. According to media reports, a student party on Thurman Circle got out of hand and a crowd of about 500 individuals pelted police with beer bottles, overturned cars, smashed windows, and damaged property. In all, 22 people were charged. Rundle says that he expects to receive information from police this week about who was charged and that will serve as a starting point for Fanshawe officials to apply an updated student code of conduct.
