Some Wesleyan University students were asked to leave the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford on Friday after center staff determined they had become unruly, the Hartford Courant reports.
About 500 students were at the center Friday night and the students were asked to leave after about two hours because of "unruly behavior," Tracy Shirer, the center's director of media and public relations told the newspaper.
A posting Saturday on the university blog wesleying.org says this about the incident:
"Last night, around 7:30 p.m., a few hundred well-oiled members of the Class of 2013 piled into buses outside of Usdan, headed—unbeknownst to passengers—to the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. Two hours later, a drunker, louder, and scientifically inspired Class of 2013 was herded onto the same buses and driven right back to Middletown. The “Freaks and Geeks, Valentine’s Day style”-themed evening—which cost $40 and made for the third senior event of the year—wasn’t supposed to end abruptly in less than two hours, but according to one student who overheard an exchange between museum staffers and Wesleyan coordinators, the ejection may have been well earned."The blog also includes a poll on the incident which asks:
Why do you think the seniors got kicked out of (the science center) on Friday?
- Too much sex in the bathroom.
- Too much barf on the stairs.
- Someone was doing coke.
- Someone spilled beer on the DJ.
- Nudity in the sound exhibit.
- Uh, I blacked out...
