Last week TMZ.com broke the news the the University of Florida threatened to expel any of their students participating on their study abroad program in Florence, Italy if they were found to be partying with the cast of The Jersey Shore again. The cast of The Jersey Shore is currently filming their fourth season in Florence. Apparently, UF administrators (well one associate dean for undergraduate affairs and enrollment management) didn't like seeing one of the UF study abroad students partying and kissing The Situation on the television show Entertainment Tonight and sent an e-mail to students warning of further disciplinary action if they were to be seen with the cast again.
TMZ.com has updated the story and reports that UF has reversed their policy.
