GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Calvin College has expelled a student over a sexual comment about a fellow student he says was posted on his Facebook page without his knowledge.
Calvin earlier put 19-year-old sophomore Tony Harris of Southfield on six months' probation.
The Christian Reformed Church-affiliated school told Harris to have no contact with the female student, move out of the dormitory they shared and post a retraction on Facebook.
Vicky Harris tells The Grand Rapids Press Calvin expelled her son Thursday after he refused to post an apology.
Calvin said in a statement it doesn't comment on specific student discipline cases, but believes it has a good process in place.
Harris says the November posting appeared after he'd given another person his password.
