September 28, 2017

University of Guelph President Franco Vaccarino has apologized to the Guelph community for the behaviour of students during the school’s recent Homecoming weekend. “I would like to personally, and on behalf of the university, apologize to any members of the Guelph community who were affected negatively,” Vaccarino said in a statement released Sunday. Vaccarino went on to say that the university takes unruly student behaviour seriously, and promised to follow up on complaints and concerns. Guelph Police Chief Jeff DeRuyter said that one party attended by students saw between 4,000 and 5,000 people gathered on a single property, causing police to close the road in an attempt to maintain order and safety. Guelph Mercury
