On Campus

Memorial boots man who stabbed student

Chinese student was studying English language

Memorial University has chosen to suspend Qiang Tang, the 23-year-old student from China who stabbed a fellow student in March. He won’t be able to re-apply until August 2012.

Tang pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm after he fought with a fellow student who he accused of speaking too loudly in class. He was given a year of house arrest by a St. John’s judge last month, but the school was left to decide whether he could return to campus.

Citizen and Immigration Canada are investigating to decide whether to deport Tang.
