More on putting off-campus behavior on academic transcripts 

A second St. Cloud Times article appears today discussing how the university intends to use the code of conduct to punish off-campus behavior. Students aren't happy.
I pay the school to get an education. I don't pay them to watch what I do off campus. Once I'm off campus, it's none of their business what I do with my time.
It's worth noting that often the violators aren't students. Of the 111 cited during move-in weekend, 40 were not students; at Mankato last week, less than half of the 45 appear to have been. On the other hand, those convicted in the hockey riots at U of M last year appear to have been students. According to the last article, students at U. Minn. will now be expelled for inciting riots, "previously, students could be disciplined only for on-campus behavior."
