It said the judicial process is continuing for the remaining three, who are currently suspended.
"Keeping them would also make the college look bad because it's saying ‘oh we're fine with students doing drugs,'" Eom said.
In a statement, Vice President for Student Affairs Michael Whaley said in part “Wesleyan is committed to providing a learning environment in which all students can thrive. The use of illicit drugs is clearly an unacceptable detriment to that environment, and our policies in this regard are firm and clear. Now the campus is hosting a three-part serious called ‘drugs, harm and the campus.”
"Drugs are not a good thing so it's definitely crucial that the school puts their attention to it,” Eom said. “So I think it's a great idea to have that forum."
The university said it is also putting together a task force to look at what else it can do to curb any drug problems.
The group would be asked to give recommendations by the end of the fall semester.
