Taking part in gay porn was in violation of the Grove City College code of conduct.

It's rare that an off-campus job can get a student kicked out of school. But it can happen when the job is in porn and the school is conservatively Christian.

Grove City College suspended John Gechter of Reading, Pa. after it was revealed that he starred in gay porn under the alias of Vincent DeSalvo, according to reports.

Gechter's profession was discovered after a fellow student ratted him out to school officials, according to the Sharon Herald.

He was working as a model and porn star to pay for college, Gechter told the area paper.

Grove City College, a small University in Western Pa., claims to be an "authentically Christian" on its Web site. Gechter's job choice didn't mix with that conservative ideal.

The college suspended Gechter for violating the school's code of conduct, said Amy Clingensmith, Senior Director of Communications for Grove City College.

The 22-year-old admitted his role in the porn industry, according to the school.

The school deflected any criticism that Gechter's sexual orientation had anything to do with the suspension.

"Throughout this process, his sexual orientation was not a factor in the decision," said Clingensmith in a statement. "The student's suspension resulted from his involvement in the adult pornography industry." she said.

Gechter choose to voluntarily leave the school, said Clingensmith Thursday.

No word yet from Gechter about why he chose to leave school.
