BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Seven Hokies have been placed on interim suspension ahead of Monday’s fall semester start for putting public health at risk during recent off-campus incidents, according to Dean of Students Byron Hughes.

“Should the Dean of Students Office, the Virginia Tech Police Department, or the Blacksburg Police Department need to respond to concerns about noise violations or disruptive parties, a referral will be made to the Office of Student Conduct for their follow-up ... Consistent with the Code of Student Conduct, we expect all students to take personal responsibility in helping to keep the public safe.”
