I attended LU beginning in 2002. From the moment I was there, things began going down hill, fast. I should have seen this as a sign. First, my roommate attempted to kill himself, and no one talked to me about this. Being a older student, not out of HS, I took it upon myself to talk to my RA and then take him to the hospital, rather than suffer any embarrassment from calling an ambulance. One of the Deans actually came into my room to look around and did not say one word to me. Not one!

Living on a hall with a bunch of football players, I ended up being bullied into writing their papers. Yes, all of these other schools that have been getting in trouble for academic fraud is true.

After completing 3 1/2 years, I ended up befriending this kid whose father and brother-in-law worked at the school. With 3 semesters left before graduation, I was forcibly withdrawn by the VP of Student Affairs because I would not name this aforementioned kid for engaging in illegal activity. When I met with this VP after I withdrew, all he had to say was that I "didn't do my job," which would have been to 'turn in' this kid. However, he had pretty much threatened my life. I had already been strangled by his other brother-in-law, not the one that was working at the school. Note, this BIL was a football player, too.

After completing my suspension, this kid had told me that he changed his lifestyle. So, I decided to let him move in with me. Hindsight, this is the one mistake in life that I could take back. He ended up not paying rent or any other bills. I finally got tired of trying to reason with him, and reached out to his father. His father's only reply was that I did not know how to budget. I tried to meet with him several other times, but he always blamed me for his son's inability to take care of his responsibilities. This was my first semester as a re-enrolled student.

Finally, this kid moved out after leaving me with several thousands of dollars worth of debt that was not "technically" mine, not to mention all of the things that he stole. I had to drop out of school because I was so far in debt by living with him. I was even working 3 jobs during this time.

The Student Conduct office reached out to me and said that they would like to hear what happened. I went to their office to make an appointment, after attempting to do so for the previous two weeks without any avail. The assistant direct of the Student Conduct office rushed me into her office and I told her my story without mentioning any names. Then, she said to go to another office and speak with them.

After I went to the second office, I received a court summons two days later. Apparently I was disorderly in my conduct. However, when I was in court representing myself, I found out that it was the brother-in-law of my ex-roommate that had filed the report. I requested my school records and was told that I was going to have to get a subpoena. Say, what? I called FERPA and then they finally released a copy of my records.

In my records, this assistant director had made up things in my records. When I went to meet with her, I had a friend accompany me in case something like this would happen. She had wrote in them that I introduced myself as this person's father (which was not true at at all) and that she

didn't know me well enough
to take my situation seriously.

When at court, the judge dismissed the case because he saw that I did not do anything wrong. There were 7 people there to "testify" against me. It was a joke. The lawyer was scolded by the judge because apparently she thought that it was some criminal court and wanted to have them come up to the stand to testify. The "detective" also changed the date of the incident during the opening of their complaint. In other words, they attempted to manufacture the situation to fit the complaint report. Then, this "detective" called me to come to sign paperwork to ban me from campus. Really? No one cares about truth anymore? And this was all after this ex-roommate had checked himself into rehab. Not to mention that I was the first victim of his destruction. He not only stole from me, but his girlfriend and his own father. But, I was the one with the problems? Esoteric agendas and nepotism at its finest.

They also violated my FERPA rights because someone affiliated with the school had opened my records and told this man's father lies. In other words, this kid had been dealing illegal things to people on campus and I took the fall because he threatened my life. I would have filed a complaint with FERPA, but I worked for a renowned professor of the school and didn't want to get him involved.

Lastly, in order to get my diploma, 9 months after I graduated, I had to call this lady 3 times and write at least three emails. It was not until I carbon copied the person that had directed me to her that I received a response.
