Harvard University policy allows for acceptance to be revoked in certain circumstances, including if students fail to graduate high school, are shown to have lied on their applications or take part in conduct that “brings their honesty, maturity or moral character into question.”According to the Crimson, one original Facebook group was started as a way for incoming students to share similar interests.
From there, a second group was started that was “more R-rated.” It was in this group that things turned “dark.” One student, whose acceptance was not revoked, described it as “a just-because-we-got-into-Harvard-doesn’t-mean-we-can’t-have-fun kind of thing.”As it turns out, just because they got into Harvard, doesn’t mean they can’t get kicked out.
