Calvin College Student Suspended Over Lewd Facebook Message
A Calvin College student has been suspended for one year over a lewd Facebook message he allegedly posted about an ex-girlfriend.
According to an article in The Grand Rapids Press, a message about an ex was posted from Tony Harris’s account in November that “referred to the woman in two slang terms and referenced sexuality.” Calvin officials did not return calls from The Chronicle, but the newspaper reported that the college cited Mr. Harris, a sophomore, for violating technology and conduct codes at the institution, which refers to itself as “distinctively Christian.”
The acceptable-use policy on the college’s Web site prohibits “communication that degrades or harasses individuals or groups.”
