Six WVU Students Facing Sanctions For Throwing Parties

MORGANTOWN, Wv. (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Six West Virginia University students are facing sanctions for throwing parties near campus last weekend.

The university is planning to put the students on probation for failing to follow health and safety protocols.

If they're caught holding parties again, they could be suspended or expelled from WVU.

“Student organizations also failing to follow WVU’s health and safety policies as it relates to social gatherings, or the state and local public health orders, will face possible deferred suspension or loss of recognition by the University,” Dean of Students Corey Farris said in a release.

Many of the incidents occurred at fraternity houses and are logged on the University’s campus safety website.

The university has a list of activies available for students to participate in so they can safely connect with fellow students.
