college officials reasonable cause to believe that the student

if a student’s activities adversely affect any legitimate college

interest, that student shall be liable to disciplinary action

and possible suspension or dismissal from college.

and individual student conduct violations may need to be

determined on a case-by-case basis within the scope of the

conduct policy.
