Colorado State University Removes Seven Students from School

Colorado State University officials today announced that seven students have been removed from school and another 15 were placed on probation for participation in recent riot events.

Today’s actions follow the completion of university judicial hearings that began last week regarding the early morning riots of August 21 and 22.

The seven students removed from school have been suspended from Colorado State for one year. While they may reapply at that time, there is no guarantee of readmission, and they must have met several conditions set by the institution before they are even eligible to reapply.  

The 15 students placed on probation will be required to complete drug and alcohol assessments as well as workshops regarding civic responsibility, ethics, city ordinances and community expectations.

Two other students received warnings.

Additionally, the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity has been placed on immediate temporary probation from their national headquarters for rules violations that occurred at a party preceding one of the riots and has been given 10 days to show cause why their charter should not be suspended. Probation means that all current functions of the fraternity must immediately cease.  

University investigations continue with assistance from Fort Collins Police reviewing video footage and could result in additional university disciplinary actions.
