Dismissal from school.How to Legal fight being dismissed

i am attending a nursing program at Western Career College and i was dismissed from the program for ordering a beer while on lunch break.My lunch break was 1 1/2 hours from my next class.The dean of the program showed up at same restaurant.I had just recieved the beer and did not yet drink the beer when i was appraoched by her to throw away beer which i did upon her advise.I return to school and she dismisses me from the programciting that i have violated school policy.I got home and reviewed the student handbook no where does it state that the have jurisdiction of their student more than 1000 ft from school also if i come to school or clinical also states if it was done unlawfully.I am a 37 yr old male adult.I feel that i did not violate the policy.Does the school have jurisdiction over me during my lunch break and can my school just terminate me like that without any counseling or disciplinary action first.i took out a $42000 student loan and was close to finishing my first semester.Should i see a lawyer to fight to be reinstated.What should i do.

I would have given the Dean a face full of beer or maybe poured it out onto her shoes. But that's just me. Good luck finding a lawyer and suing them!
