KUL’s student dead following an initiation: one survivor risks exclusion
Saturday, 09 February 2019
The eighteen students present at the Reuzegom Student Club’s university initiation that was fatal to a 20-year-old student, last December, risk heavy sanctions from KUL Leuven, even definitive expulsion from the campus, Sudpresse Nieuwsblad and Het titles report Saturday.
The academic institution is conducting a disciplinary investigation on the role played by each participant.
One of the students injured in the tragic initiation was also invited to appear before the institution’s disciplinary committee. He is accused of not having raised the alarm in time, which could have prevented his companion’s death. He faces expulsion until the end of the year.
