UK shuts down CSF for K Week after crowded luau

university of kentucky

Classes start at the University of Kentucky today, and already, one student organization is in hot water for a crowded party.

According to the Kentucky Kernel, the Christian Student Fellowship (CSF) hosted its annual luau on Saturday night, but was forced to shut it down after the crowd got too big. UK has banned the CSF from hosting events the remainder of K Week. The CSF shared the news on Facebook, but later deleted the post:

The CSF hosts a luau every year, but this year, changed it from a dance party to a cookout, presumably in hopes of creating a more socially-distanced atmosphere.

That apparently did not work. Current state guidelines restrict gatherings to ten or fewer people. On Saturday, this video of a crowd around the CSF building was posted on Twitter:


This isn’t just a problem at UK; as students return to college campuses across the country, photos and videos of large gatherings are taking over social media. Yesterday, Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne tweeted this picture of a crowd in Tuscaloosa, preaching the importance of wearing masks and maintaining social distance:

This morning, the “TODAY Show” ran an entire segment on college parties:

Between enforcing the student code of conduct for on- and off-campus parties and now banning the CSF from holding events the rest of K Week, it’s clear UK is trying to keep students safe. But, it’s also becoming increasingly clear that asking students not to party in college is fruitless — even at an event with no alcohol involved.

    Shut the campuses down for the semester. 18-25 year olds will never be responsible and compliant to the extent necessary to stay open.

      How many people like you have to recant on social media for you to listen? Don’t wait til you or a loved one suffer an extreme case like that KSR caller last week.

      It’s best not to keep repeating for the mush brained. You know who you can have reasonable conversations with, but this guy likes to use known conspiracy websites as evidence for his delusions. You know what they say about repeating the same action and hoping for a different result. Leave this one alone. He is helpless.

    Regrettably, certain highly visible people continue to push the false narrative that young people are safe, so it only reinforces their willingness to go to events like this. Even if they’re at extremely low risk, there are countless faculty, staff, parents and grandparents who could be exposed and die unnecessarily. Universities are already hotbeds for spread of illness, as any grad can tell you. Freshman year, I caught a bug going around and developed pneumonia afterwards.

    I wish to God people would stop trying to make this a partisan issue and just listen to the trained experts. So many other countries are running so much more normally because they took it seriously and behaved rationally. We can do better.

      Listen to the trained experts who say *don’t* have school, or the ones who say have school? There are those on both sides you know, just like there are experts on both sides of masks, the effectiveness or lack thereof of hydroxychloroquine, etc.

      Regrettably, certain political party continues their destruction of this country by making things out to be much more than they really are. Using it to destroy the economy and use against a certain political opponent. Studies show its much harder for younger people to get it. Did you ever realize we never had an issue with kids getting it, until someone said schools should be open, and then all of a sudden cases of school age kids started popping up everywhere a month before school starts? Yeah. Not saying its not real, but it is def being used politically.

      “trained experts”. So if the “trained experts” told you starting tomorrow we must walk around with a thumb up our butt, will you do that also? Research. Don’t go by what someone tells you to believe on TV. Other countries did NOTHING and they have already beaten it.

    I wish they’d institute the draft again. All these selfish little a**holes need to go fight in a war and they’d quickly figure out about self sacrifice. Bunch of self entitled kids.

    Christians can’t have a party but black lives matter can protest and loot. Go figure. When our governor shuts down the protest like other things then I may listen.

      This isn’t about religion and you know it. Go put your red herrings back in the water and go home.

    Well…as expected this started well didn’t it? LOL. They’ll be shut down inside of a month.

    Should have looted, burned, and painted everything in sight! Then they would have been exempt from coronavirus rules!

      What a bunch of crap. We all know the virus is smart and knows the difference. It would know its a fake protest and not a real one and still strike.

    Or we could be like Sweden and I think its New Zealand that did nothing at all, doesn’t wear masks, didn’t let political opponents destroy their economy, and they have pretty much eradicated it.
