BLACKSBURG, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Tech has suspended more than 40 students for failing to follow public rules, according to Frank Shushok, vice president for Student Affairs.
“Making social choices, wearing a mask, keeping your distance, washing your hands, and being committed to that is hard,” he said. “I want to acknowledge that it is especially hard to be a college student right now. I want to implore you to keep making good decisions and holding people accountable.”
This announcement was made at a virtual town hall the university held on Sept. 11.
During this town hall, college leaders and students talked about VT’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
