Another vendor has been stricken from the Flex-friendly list—this time, by the University.

Camille’s on Amsterdam Avenue has been expelled from the Flex program for non-compliance with the University’s alcohol restrictions. Administrators say they caught the restaurant allowing students to purchase alcohol using Flex on multiple occasions.

“Any attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages  using Flex could potentially jeopardize not only the merchant’s participation but the entire program,” explains Michael Novielli of Student Auxiliary and Business Services in an e-mail to Bwog.

Though this no doubt comes as bad news for the three Columbia students who ever go to Camille’s, it also reverses the hard-fought gains by Wondee Siam V, bringing the total of merchants accepting Flex back down to 17.
