Three Strikes, You’re Out: Students can lose housing if COVID rules are broken

Some universities have mask mandates, other universities require the COVID vaccine, and some even have a system in place that allows complaints and violations of safety policies to be reported to administration. Point Park University, located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has implemented all three.

On Oct. 20 Point Park University’s (PPU) student paper The Globe published a piece that featured a PPU official explaining the importance of holding “students who do not follow the masking policies” accountable. 

According to Director of Student Conduct Angelo Gargaro, “Students can submit an incident report, which can be found via pointpark.edu.”

Although incident reports regarding COVID-19 safety violations can be submitted anonymously, Gargaro expresses the importance of including as much information as possible.
