A student was suspended this week for displaying “truly excessive” pride, a vice which is expressly prohibited in Lee University’s Community Covenant.
The student, who demanded his identity be concealed to protect his “considerable reputation,” had been warned several times for repeated infractions, but was finally called in to the office of the Dean of Students when a Residential Life staff member overheard his boast that “his mustache could beat Paul Conn’s in a fight any day”.
“That was really taking it too far,” said the student’s RD. “Who would dare to say something like that? It’s like claiming you’re more saintly than Dr. Augustine, or more popular than a post-chapel mixer. Ludicrous.”
