Two students were arrested after a fight broke out at Lincoln University on Friday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. A campus police officer was assaulted while trying to break up the fight, which occurred while students were waiting in line for a late-night dance. The officer used pepper spray to control the crowd and 15 students were sent to the hospital for treatment. All have been released.

The university has canceled all parties and "has pledged to bring students and administrators together to address concerns and develop procedures to prevent such incidents in the future," according to a statement in the Inquirer.
