There are 3 comments on BU Hotline for COVID-19 Reports Gets Nearly 200 Calls in First Month

  1. Why doesn’t the school start enforcing the rules. No one is afraid to get caught because nothing has been mentioned about any students being suspended. Everyone knows they’ll get one warning, so there is no fear. I don’t want to see kids suspended, but hold them accountable like they did at Northeastern. What are all these campaigns and rules about if nothing is enforced. If they are being enforced, the kids should know. My daughter doesn’t bother to call the hotline, she says everyone knows nothing will happen. This is not about them, it’s about everyone. BU can do better.

    1. Exactly!! Nothing happens when we call the hotline, and I’m extremely upset. This is a major health risk and it seems like BU doesn’t care beyond on campus violations.

  2. Agreed. I wish BU would respond to questions about enforcement. It seems very hush hush to both students and parents. Is there a list of infractions and suspensions available from the school (without names of course). This would be the single most effective thing kids could see that could make them think twice before doing something stupid. My daughter has only heard of one kid who was put on academic probation for having a crowded and unsafe frat party. She doesn’t even know if it’s true. They spend time promoting, FCUK IT won’t cut it, but it’s more like, FCUK IT, and you will probably get a lecture from the dean. Again, BU, please do better for those kids who follow the rules and are put at risk by those that don’t care. Unfortunately, BU has set a horrible precedent. Take a poll on campus, see what students think are the consequences for breaking the rules. I know from my daughter that many will not think they are getting suspended.
