Cal Poly's Vice President of Student Affairs, Keith Humphrey, announced Friday that the university is in contact with 61 students who say they were at a large gathering at Pirate's Cove last weekend.
Video of the event sparked controversy after it was shared on Instagram. The video showed an estimated 50 to 60 college-aged people huddling together without masks.
Humphrey says the 61 students self-reported being present at the party after the university announced that it was trying to identify the people involved.
In a post on Facebook, Humphrey said, "While our focus will be on both accountability and education regarding how an event like this was inappropriate during a pandemic, we will also be educating [the students] about some of the other inappropriate behaviors on display in the video."
