Bob Jones Student Kicked Off Campus After Watching "Glee"
Chris Peterman, a senior at Bob Jones University, racked up demerits after he created an activist group on campus, and ultimately was kicked out when his last demerits were issued for watching the television show "Glee" off campus.
A 23-year-old student at Bob Jones University has been kicked out of school after bucking the administration.
But it's the act that resulted in his final demerits, that's causing a stir.
It was a story first reported by WSPA, Chris Peterman said he was kicked off campus this week when he contacted the Department of Education and the university's accreditation agency, after he complained of being targeted by the conservative school's administration.
In late 2011, Peterman formed an activist group on campus, "Do Right BJU," which raised awareness of sexual abuse and provided support to those suffering from sexual abuse.
When the administration had a problem with a demonstration on campus, as well as the group's active Facebook page, Peterman said he became the target of harrassment, receiving demerits for things like not shaving, and toward the end of his time at BJU, for watching the popular Fox show "Glee."
His story is featured on the "Do Right BJU" Facebook page and posted on YouTube.
Peterman said he is appealing the decision. Bob Jones University officials have not responded to Patch's request for comment.
