Kennesaw State adviser placed on leave after confrontation with student

A Kennesaw State University has placed an academic adviser on administrative leave while the school investigates a student’s viral 30-second video of his interaction with her.

In the video, Abby Dawson, the school’s director of advising and internships in the Department of Exercise Science and Sport Management, accused the student of “harassment” for apparently sitting in the room and waiting to speak with his academic adviser.

    Well the poor woman obviously had an exercise class starting. No reason to do her job.

    Phone video is fun.

    I deal with “empowered” bitter women like her everyday, they belong to the class that bought into feminism and are now realizing the whole thing is an empty scam, nothing in her future but a bunch of “empowered” cats

    The one comment in the story nailed it very well, that these are employees being paid by the students. Just spent the last few years taking courses at college myself and saw a lot of this first hand. As someone older I did not get that same treatment but did see it committed. Should go without saying it isn’t all, I did find some very helpful staff, but too large of a percentage of them had an attitude much like this woman.

    I hate to imagine what these precious snowflakes will be like when they’re 60 … that is if they make it that far… with global warming an’ all.

      Well, it looks like there is at least one good site to global warming… or is it climate change? One gets so confused in one’s old age.

    This woman is a hateful control freak. I’ll bet she hasn’t laughed since she was 12.

    Just watch her body language. The hand wringing and nervous movements show she knew she was wrong when she attacked the student but, instead of dealing with it in an adult manner she decided forge ahead and turn her mistake into a major incident. Although, it’s good to see that she’s been placed on leave but, the term permanently before it would have been much more fitting especially considering she was probably placed on leave due to the stress caused by the students harassment.. LOL

    There’s a not insignificant portion of women that should never be let out of the house because they’re crazy.

      she is a perfect example of an HR harpy. These bitter failed women tend to slide into HR and safety as it gives them a small measure of authority and encourages the inner feminist fascist.

        Nail on the head. I’ve run into a few of these. They empower any woman on the workforce who wants to play a frivolous “H” card with malicious intent.
