A college senior at HBCU St. Augustine is slated to graduate this Sunday but won’t be able to walk because of something he posted on Facebook.

Roman Caple  said that the vice president of student affairs at the college told him it was based on a Facebook post on his profile that “jeopardized the integrity of the college.”

Even though Caple posted a lot of comments on his Facebook page following the tornado that hit the Raleigh, N.C. area almost two weeks ago, he is confused as to what could have offended the college. Most of his comments alluded to the unification and strength the students should have at that time of distress and uncertainty. One of the posts said, “We all need to set our differences aside and help one another. Falcons we will continue to fly high because that’s what we do. Help your neighbor, if need be, Falcons are one.”
