Camborne School of Mines started a ‘series of meetings’ with students and faculty from Wednesday this week following a CSM social which saw students wearing high-visibility jackets sprawled with derogatory comments about current debates: the Las Vegas shooting and rape.
The school, which is part of the University of Exeter, held their annual social last Thursday.
It consisted of going to local Falmouth entertainment venues, wearing hard hats and high-visibility jackets to reflect the practical nature of their course.
This event gained wide-spread coverage from mainstream media, including: The Telegraph, BBC and Cornwall Live which has raised concern by the non-attending students about their course’s reputable status.
The Camborne School held a meeting on Wednesday followed by another this Friday.
A CSM student, told Truthfal: “We all feel quite ashamed to be CSM.”
He went onto say how a lecturer from the main Exeter campus came to visit today and did brainstorming with the students on possible options to help mend the damage.
“Most of the student body are frustrated, angry and whether we have been tarnished with it. We have some student ideas about how we’re going about this.”
