The three Bradley soccer players serving six months in jail for involuntary manslaughter will not be allowed back at the University. This as Bradley unveils a new, stricter alcohol action plan for students today.
This 31-page action plan is very specific laying out the consequences for certain actions. Here are a few highlights.
First, students will receive an additional $50 fine from the University for a drinking ticket on or off campus.
Students who get three drinking citations now face suspension from the university.
And, students who host underage drinking parties will be fined $250.
The announcement comes in the wake of a bad year for Bradley when it comes to booze.
Two basketball players arrested for illegal consumption.
And, the big shocker, the death of soccer player Danny Dahlquist. His roommates pulled a fatal firecracker prank after a night of drinking.
Bradley President Joanne Glasser gives this reason why David Crady, Ryan Johnson and Nicholas Mentgen can't re-enroll at Bradley.
She said, "There were and are policies and procedures in place. They have been followed. There's been a series of written communication that have accompanied all of our actions."
The action plan also provides for more alcohol education programs and alcohol-free, late-night on-campus events.
Bradley Student President Jordan Ticaric said, "We do not want to experience another year like this one. We cannot."
That's why the Bradley student president is putting hope into a new alcohol action plan. She worked with other students and school leaders to put together the detailed policy.
Alan Galsky, the Bradley Associate Provost for Student Affairs said, "Under this policy, all students regardless of who they are and what they do for the University will be treated equally."
Freshman Francis Quintero said, "I've witnessed before people being intoxicated. It's very good, something that's needed."
The Bradley Campus hopes it now doesn't take another death for students and the university to take notice.
