China's first-rate Tsinghua University published an open list on the very first day of the fall semester to warn and penalize students who did not follow the university's campus regulations in the past academic year.
A total of 11 students were seen on the list, including eight doctorates, two postgraduates and another postgraduate enrolled on a part-time basis. These students received notifications from the university's postgraduate school for their past wrongdoings.
One of the listed students, a 24-year-old studying at the School of Law, has been dismissed from Tsinghua for hacking into an instructor's account on the university's intranet and tampering with classmates' school reports.
Others were warned that their behavior had dishonored the university's reputation.
A 31-year-old student was put on academic probation because he had claimed titles of: "a Tsinghua University graduate"; "a Tsinghua University instructor" and "the vice president of IT Association under the Tsinghua Alumni Association" without permission from the university.
Another student claimed to be staff at the university's administration office and lied to police about his phone containing classified information when he forced police officers to recover his phone at the Beijing Airport this June.
Disciplinary warnings have also been issued to students who were related to altercations with other students and campus staff. Several of the 11 were reported fighting lab staff and friends.
According to eastday.com, the university's open disciplinary warning and penalty imposed on its unruly students is part of "the Loosely in and Strictly out" proposal, which intends to accept more students into the university, but applies strict regulations to student's academic performance and behavior on campus.
