A Northeastern vice president is warning students to be on their best behavior following the Patriots/Ravens game on Sunday:
As the Patriots prepare to play for the AFC Championship on Sunday afternoon, I want to remind you that the university expects all students to behave in a respectful and appropriate manner during and after the game.
All too often, sporting events have become occasions for disruptive and dangerous behavior by fans. Such behavior will not be tolerated by Northeastern University. The Student Code of Conduct – which applies to all students at all times, whether you are on or off campus – sets forth the sanctions for inappropriate behavior. The university will take swift action against any students whose conduct is deemed detrimental to themselves, their peers, the university or the surrounding community.
I urge you to keep yourself and your friends safe during and after the game. We urge you to continue to avoid large crowds and situations that may become disruptive or dangerous. I fully expect all our students will enjoy the game and act in a responsible and respectful way.
The game will be played on the large-screen televisions in afterHOURS and in the residence halls. Enjoy the game, keep yourself safe and please urge your friends to do the same.
Dr. Laura A. Wankel
Vice President for Student Affairs
