A 23-year-old student at Bob Jones University from Bradenton has been kicked out of school after bucking the administration.
But it's the act that resulted in his final demerits, that's causing a stir.
It was a story first reported by WSPA, Chris Peterman said he was kicked off campus this week when he contacted the Department of Education and the university's accreditation agency, after he complained of being targeted by the conservative school's administration.
In late 2011, Peterman formed an activist group on campus, "Do Right BJU," which raised awareness of sexual abuse and provided support to those suffering from sexual abuse.
When the administration had a problem with a demonstration on campus, as well as the group's active Facebook page, Peterman said he became the target of harrassment, receiving demerits for things like not shaving, and toward the end of his time at BJU, for watching the popular Fox show "Glee."
His story is featured on the "Do Right BJU" Facebook page and posted on YouTube. Peterman contacted the offices of Congressman Vern Buchanan and Senator Marco Rubio for help. Peterman says it was contacting the elected officials that led to his expulsion. Bob Jones University leaders told him it was an act of intimidation.
Peterman said he is appealing the decision. Bob Jones University officials have not responded to Patch's request for comment.
