(Scroll down for video) University students in China, were humiliated after they did not keep their rooms clean.

Administrators at a university in Hunan, are under fire after students were forced to lie on pavement while wrapped in blankets under the hot sun as punishment for not keeping their room tidy.

22 female freshman students at the Hunan Vocational College of Foreign Languages, were forced to endure the punishment as more than 2,000 of their peers watched.

The student lied under the sun while wrapped in their blankets for about 10 minutes, before they were ordered to place a bucket over their heads and jog around the track while other students were watching.

After photos of the incident went viral on the Internet, university officials admitted that this type of punishment is likely to be emotionally harmful to students.

The school also arranged counseling for those students who were forced to endure the blanket punishments.
