Disciplinary action?

will97will97 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
Hello, I am currently a freshman at Emory University. I plan on applying to the business school next year. Unfortunately, I've been written up a whopping 6 times, one of which was expunged due to medical amnesty. Most of these write ups are very minor. I was a witness in one, and I had a lounge chair in my dorm room for the other. The rest had to do with alcohol and marijuana. I have talked to my res life director multiple times for up to an hour and I can tell he doesn't want me to get in too much trouble with the school. With that being said, how likely is it that I will be suspended from Emory? While getting kicked out of the residence hall would suck, I would much rather have that happen than be booted from such a great institution. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    Are you worried that disciplinary action is going to come against you? I'm sure you should probably talk to Residential council or something like that to learn more. If they haven't mentioned it to you there should be no reason to worry.

    But, yes B-school admissions is gonna be hard with those violations.

    Well I'm currently awaiting 5 different conduct hearings. Thanks for the response. I've been getting really involved on campus this semester so that coupled with my personal grown will hopefully help me when it comes to B-school admissions. I'm mainly just worried about suspension.

    5 different conduct hearings? Are you going to the University Conduct Council? If so I'm assuming I'll probably see you at the hearing... Depends on the severity of the cases but honestly if you haven't caused any trouble and truly show you learn from your actions you should be fine. Possibly suspended but I usually see suspension because of academic reasons.

    Why don't you just obey the rules? That would make sense.

    Really don't need a sarcastic response like that. I'm just trying to gauge the seriousness of the situation. I had a very rough time during my first semester family issues, social issues, etc. Please be respectful as this is really serious to me as I've grown a lot since these write ups. Please leave this thread.

    Thank you for your response @thecoolboy1234
    I believe that's where I'm headed. My res hall director has been incredibly kind with me as we talk on nearly an every other day basis. My academics are not the issue at the moment and hopefully I can keep it that way as long as I don't screw myself with finals lol. The cases in general aren't serious at all besides the marijuana incident, as the state of Georgia is very strict with that.

    You're not allowed to have lounge chairs in the room??
  • thecoolboy1234thecoolboy1234 Registered User Posts: 364 Member
    @Oliea98 nope, makes sense though. Its public property, by taking it to your room you're "stealing" from the public for your private use.

    Sort of silly rule but it does make sense.

    I meant to take it out before winter break but I blanked on that one lol. I wish they could've just asked or gave me a warning for it. My friends in other dorms do it all the time but they put them back so I went wrong there. But yeah my offense are very minor in general and hinder no one but myself so I hope that will help

    You don't respect the rules at Emory and you expect others to be "respectful" of you? If you continue with your past behavior it is very serious.

    18 year old's(developing pre-frontal cortex) will be 18 year old's sometime with the present party atmosphere.

    And you will have to bear the consequences for participating in that scene.

    Very funny. Maybe they'd be sick of my antics after hearing that I plan on starting my own organization here on campus as well as the fact that I'm a part of many other volunteer organizations here. All I'm asking is for serious, respectful responses. My RA and I are actually very close as well thank you very much. He's just been plain rude to me and I really don't appreciate rudeness.

    Honestly, I had a very helpful response from @thecoolboy1234 and that's all I needed so to avoid anymore rude people like @OspreyCV22 and TomSr I shall delete this thread after my complaint has been reviewed.

    Apparently the OP has learned nothing from his experience.
