The suspended students must leave their residence hall by Wednesday and can appeal the suspensions.
Purdue has suspended 14 students, including 13 athletes, for holding a party in a campus residence hall that violated the “Protect Purdue Pledge.”
The university released a statement on Monday saying none of the athletes compete in fall sports. The suspended students must leave their residence hall by Wednesday and may appeal the suspensions. Dean of students Katie Sermersheim said University Residences staff discovered the party in a campus dorm on Saturday.

“Purdue Athletics is aware of the incident that took place over the weekend involving 13 out-of-season student-athletes. Our student-athletes, coaches and staff remain committed to following the guidelines of the Protect Purdue Pledge, and have been working
