2 Expulsions at Virginia Are Upheld
The UVA Board of Visitors upholds President Darden's disciplinary sanctions against five students: two expulsions and three suspensions. However, student leaders--including Stuart Valentine, student president--charge that Darden's disciplinary actions have led to a "state of distrust and police action." Student President Valentine, Student Council President Willilam Tazewell, and Interfraternity Council President Mebane Turner speak out against administrators' actions in front of "800 cheering members of the student body in Cabell Hall."
