In what is, at this point, probably among the least of his worries, George Zimmerman has been expelled from college. Zimmerman, 28, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin on February 26, has been withdrawn from Seminole State College, where he had been a student.

According to an article by Bianca Prieto in the Orlando Sentinel:

George Zimmerman was kicked out of Seminole State College today, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting.

“Due to the highly charged and high-profile controversy involving this student, Seminole State has taken the unusual but necessary step this week to withdraw Mr. Zimmerman from enrollment,” according to a statement from the college. “This decision is based solely on our responsibility to provide for the safety of our students on campus as well as for Mr. Zimmerman.”

Zimmerman, a community watch captain, was working toward an associate in arts degree in general studies, according to the article.
