During the March 4 cheerleading competition, the student enacted a wedding proposal and allegedly kissed the hand of another female atop a human pyramid while doing her routine.
In a Facebook post yesterday, the student disclosed that she had received a two-week suspension from NCU.
However, she believes the punishment was not fair given that she was the only one in the cheerleading group who was penalised.
According to the student, she was not the only one who performed or who was atop the pyramid and who took part in the mock proposal.
She says it was decided that she would represent the male in the proposal because a man would have been too heavy for the top of the pyramid.
She says the Brodie House Cheerleading team did not see anything wrong with the pyramid as they were aware of what the group was trying to depict.
Meanwhile, the NCU’s student government says there was no discrimination in the imposition of a penalty on the student.
A member of NCU’s student government in charge of student services, Darren Barrett who sat on the committee that met with the female student said she breached other university regulations.
Barrett says it was later determined that the student was responsible for changing the original routine which was not approved by a social committee.
He further says the student appeared before the Citizenship Committee without her identification card and had a pierced tongue.
Barrett says the other female student who was involved in the mock proposal was called to a meeting but did not turn up.
He says no action has been taken against that student.
