Wesleyan Students Kicked out of Museum: WTNH.com

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Things got a little out of hand for a group of Wesleyan seniors at the Connecticut Science Center. They say they got kicked out after being there just a few hours.
Sex and drugs are just some of the things that allegedly got Wesleyan seniors kicked out of a science museum.
As college comes to a close, Wesleyan University seniors plan several events to bring the class together.
"It's a fun atmosphere. You're with your entire class, it's always supposed to be a good time," said senior Kaya Ceci.
The parties are called senior cocktails and usually happen at a bar but last week's event was held at the Connecticut science center and it did not go well. These seniors were there...
"Spilling alcoholic beverages," said senior Andrew Pfiffer. "Just way too much expensive equipment to have around some crazy college people."
Students tell us the science center shindig lasted less than 2 hours. Students were allegedly found doing drugs and having sex in bathrooms. At least one senior allegedly climbed a dinosaur exhibit and there are reports of vomiting off of a flight of stairs.
"The things that happened were sort of ridiculous," said sophomore Sage Ryza.
Still, students say don't blame them, blame poor planning.
"It was kind of a questionable plan to bring a bunch of people to a science museum where there is definitely drinking going on," said Charlie Smith.
"Apparently they've done other events in the past before and stuff and the events were for other age groups and then you put a bunch of students as opposed to AARP members, you're going to get a different reaction," said Christopher Caines.
"It was a bad idea and I am sorry to the staff of the science center," said Pfiffer.
News 8 did stop by the science center. Though some staffers said off camera that they knew of the alleged incidents, the center declined to comment.
