Back To School, Again

Don’t mess with Catawba Valley Community College. When student Marc Bechtol criticized the North Carolina college on his Facebook page for its aggressive marketing of credit cards, a CVCC bureaucrat decided enough was enough:

She informed Bechtol that he would be suspended for two semesters and withdrawn from his current classes for violating policy 3.18 “J” in the CVCC student policy manual, which states that students may be suspended or expelled for the “commission of any other offense which, in the opinion of the administration or faculty, may be contrary to the best interest of the CVCC community.”

Now the college has reinstated Bechtol. Josh Fatzick of The College Fix has the story.
